Your Donations at Work: Guinea


Guinea: WAHA confronted similar Ebola-related challenges in Guinea, using patient outreach as a way to address fears about accessing health services following the epidemic. Their holistic approach to treating patients includes pre- and postoperative care, rehabilitation, nutritional support, and psychosocial services, ensuring that women receive the best possible care. Since 2015, your donations have funded treatment for 250 women in Guinea, as well as training for local care teams at two hospitals, an anesthesia machine, transportation costs for patients, and efforts to help recovering patients reintegrate with their communities.
