Update: Covid 19 response
Mar 25, 2020
As of March 24, Senegal has 99 cases of Covid 19, with the number expected to rise. Nearly all regions have been affected at this point. President Macky Sall has declared a state of emergency, issued a curfew, and restricted all domestic travel and gatherings.
We have been working closely with our partners Dr. Badiane of Fann Hospital, Dr. Juliette Faye of the Keur Djiguene Yi Women’s Health Center, and Dr. Magueye Ba of the Sinthian Medical Clinic, to source additional masks, sanitizer, and thermometers as they prepare to deal with a growing number of cases.
Keeping healthcare workers protected is essential in the fight against Covid 19.
We have worked with these doctors for many years and are doing our utmost to ensure that they, and their colleagues, are well-equipped for the challenges to come.
Your support makes this possible. If you are able to make a donation at this time, it will go a long way to helping our colleagues in Senegal.
