Today, Gbomai and a long time supporter of the foundation, Sonporina Williamson, leave for the foundation’s second trip to Liberia -Â Ahhh, we’re are so excited to be making the journey back!
If you can recall from our Facebook updates in February, our first trip was quite eventful as we met with Liberia’s Minister ofÂ Health to talk about GBF’s intentions, medical professionals at the The Liberian Goverment Hospital of Tubmanburg, and held a special ceremony for our first maternal ward adoption. In case you recently joined us in our support for Liberian mothers and children subject to maternal and child mortality, you can take a look at photos from our first trip here! We were so grateful to have connected with people like Dr. Peters, the resident doctor of Liberian Hospital, who even visited us this summer when she was selected to attend a special health conference at Yale University – she has inspired us beyond words to continue our work! However, our most proud connections were made with the expecting mothers of the clinics we visited in Tubmanburg. Their response to items you helped us purchase or donated to the Maternal Care Packages was so positive and appreciative. More than this, the resilience and courage they wear daily despite the challenges they face, inspires us even more!
If you haven’t joined us on Facebook, please do, as we will be posting pictures and short updates on the progression of Gbomai and Sonporina’s trip!
We’re off to the airport NOW – catch our minute-to-minute updates here!
