Dial – in Number: 1-4154646800
Conference ID: 17011.
The conference call will facilitate an update relating to the maiden meeting of Medicos held on Sunday August 24, 2014 at the Embassy of Sierra Leone in Washington DC, and also to further discuss and identify practical action towards the fight against Ebola.
As we are all aware by now, Sierra Leone is facing a virulent outbreak of the Ebola virus disease since June 2014. The Ebola pandemic which at this point has struck the lives of hundreds of our people within the past months has caused tremendous strains on the Government of Sierra Leone and affected families.
Due to the increase of infected citizens, the Government has launched an international appeal for assistance with regards to medical supplies, protective apparel, materials, financial and human resources.
As an Embassy, we have been meeting with heads of organizations and individuals in the Diaspora to raise awareness of the country’s plight. In this connection, we believe that
members of the medical profession have a lot to contribute in the fight against this scourge. Friends of Sierra Leone are also welcome. Hope to hear from you all.
