Given that Liberia has had the experience of joining together to push back yet another deadly virus, Ebola, we believe we are one of few countries best placed to beat COVID-19. We also know from experience that we cannot afford to wait until more people are dying. Liberia has been building its medical capacity for years but is still not equipped to save the lives of those who become most critically ill. Prevention is the key and we have specific strategies for giving Liberians a fighting chance at avoiding infection and caring for those who do become sick.
Survivors’ Truths Liberia is currently providing communications guidance and local direct relief and is committed to join with relevant authorities and stakeholders in the fight against COVID-19 but we need to do more.
During the Ebola crisis, Survivors’ Truths Liberia released Communication Guidelines and a plan for safe care in community that contributed greatly to the ability of local leaders to mobilize their constituents to suppress the spread of the disease. With your support, we can make a real impact on the lives of Liberians at this critical time.
