The Clinic and Coronavirus

So just as we were starting to roll out the web site, with which we hoped to drive many donations, the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic enveloped the entire planet. Most people in most countries were asked to remain at home except for necessary outings such as grocery shopping, banking, pharmacy or household shopping. Many people lost their jobs as economies all over the world began to shut down. In the United States, nearly 1 in 10 people have applied for unemployment assistance - a record in modern times.

As of this writing, Sierra Leone has 100 cases of COVID-19 with no deaths. However, given the density of major cities such as Freetown, one case can spiral into hundreds in no time. We are grateful for the low number of COVID-19 cases in Sierra Leone, but ask that all people follow the guidelines of their country as well as the World Health Organization in terms of protecting themselves.

And we get it, if people are worried about buying food, paying utilities, mortgages and rent, donating to a clinic in Sierra Leone is not high on their priority list. However, there are people who are receiving a steady income as they work from home. By working from home they are saving gasoline and avoiding the stress of commuting and paying for some place to park. It is THOSE people whom we turn to and ask for assistance with The Temne Clinic. We need your help now, more than ever. Please donate to The Temne Clinic. Lives depend on it. You can make a difference. Donate and share this website with all your contacts. Do it today. Do it now. Thank you.
