- Phebe Rehab Center
- The Liberia Fistula Project
- Dr. Jallah's clinic
- Dr. Mulbah's clinic
- Eternal Love Winning Africa (ELWA)
- Bomi Hospital (left for later pick-up)
They also discussed how to use the materials with the staff at the Phebe Training Program and spent two days interacting with the women and girls at Rehab.
Accommodations for Future Trips
They met with Karen Ackley Kern, ELWA Guest House Manager, to discuss our possibly using their guesthouse on future trips to Liberia.
They also looked into accommodations at the Passion Hotel in Gbarnga to use on out trips up country to Phebe.
They met with Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah M.D., who made several suggestions regarding waiting home construction and resources for building plans.
Additionally, they met with Russ, a general contractor at ELWA to get an idea of construction costs for estimation purposes, and planned for sustainability. Russ will serve as a source for materials purchases.
