-Institute of Nursing Sciences, ISSI, Rep. Dem. of the Congo
-Walé Health Center, Ivory Coast
In the first phase of the emergency, it was possible to offer help to the partner health structures (Monkole Hospital Centre and Institute of Nursing Sciences-ISSI in the DR Congo; Walé Health Centre in the Ivory Coast and Niger Foundation Hospital in Nigeria) by providing personal protective equipment, intensive care equipment and distance learning; awareness campaigns were also promoted in the most peripheral areas to combat the spread of the virus.
At a later stage, help was provided to ensure continuity in the training of medical and nursing staff; equipment was purchased to carry out tests and analyses; the existing infrastructure was improved for better distancing; and home health care was strengthened. From 2020 to the first half of 2021, thanks to the efforts of the various Harambee Committees around the world, € 83,435 was raised.
In constant contact with local health structures and thanks to monitoring activities, the Harambee appeal constantly responds to the urgent and real needs of the populations it addresses.
The third phase of the emergency campaign therefore has the following objectives:
