Our New 100-Bed Ebola Treatment Center in Sierra Leone is Almost Ready

1505629_618203394956930_3958036177157081387_nEMERGENCY‘s new Ebola Treatment Center outside Freetown, Sierra Leone is fully constructed and almost ready to open! The Center was built in under two months, has a capacity of 100 beds, and is scheduled to open in mid December once it is fully equipped. Its swift construction was made possible by support from the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).

This new Center helps address a growing need: there are 100 new cases of Ebola in Sierra Leone every day. Our doctors and nurses are working round-the-clock to provide care to the sick in our full 22-bed Ebola Treatment Centre in Lakka. In addition, we’ve opened a First Aid Post in Waterloo to screen suspected cases.

The epidemic isn’t stopping, and we won’t either.
