Water to Thrive is partnering with Maternal Health Fund on a project to provide necessary COVID-19 relief supplies to essential healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ethiopia. Maternal Health Fund generously gave $25,000 for us to send to our in-country partner in Southern Ethiopia, Mekane Yesus–South Central Ethiopian Synod (MY-SCES). MY-SCES purchased the supplies, which include personal protection equipment (PPE) such as facial masks, gloves and protective gowns, hand soap and sanitizing solution. Now, our in-country partner is in the process of distributing these supplies to rural health clinics and hospitals in Southern Ethiopia. This project is due to be completed mid-September.
Below are pictures of hand soap, PPE and sanitizing solution purchased and ready for delivery.
