Urgent Need: Jericho Road is still in Sierra Leone despite the Ebola crisis
The Ebola crisis in West Africa is directly effecting Jericho Road because of our medical missions project there. Please pray for Phebian and her team as they continue to have a presence in the Kono district of Sierra Leone. Many organizations have left or pushed pause on their projects but we've decided to continue our medical mission project there. Although we will not be providing Ebola care specifically, we will be partnering with honorable organizations that are. We've raised enough money for an ambulance and for a 40 foot crate filled with personal protective equipment as well as other medical supplies. Thank you for helping us!
We've recently identified another need that we are raising money for in order to tangibly help the people of Sierra Leone. The need is for food. We are partnering with the Sierra Leone Alliance of WNY in order to bring much needed food to the 4 districts that we work in. Often times Ebola patients are left without food and water because it's usually the families that provide that while their loved ones are hospitalized. Since Ebola patients are quarantined, the families can not provide food or water for them. As a result, many patients starve or try to escape. Some succeed in escaping therefore spreading the virus. Our goal is to raise $190,000 in order to help provide food for Ebola patients during this crisis over a 12 month time period. We do have partners in country to distribute the food.
