The coronavirus has arrived on the African continent. The spread of the virus is inevitable and the lack of medical equipment and health care personnel could lead to a mortality rate three times higher than in European countries.
Our medical teams on the ground are warning:
“We, at ALIMA, we are doctors, we are emergency medical specialists, we know how to respond to outbreaks such as Ebola, Lassa fever or cholera. Every day, we admit patients affected by the coronavirus. But we need more equipment to treat them.
To save lives, we need oxygen. We need oxygen concentrators. That’s a solution that can be deployed in all of our areas of intervention. Please, help us!”
The virus can attack everyone.
Everyone can attack the virus.
Let’s mobilize for oxygen,
to respond to the COVID-19 epidemic in Africa.
To save lives, make a donation.
