Phebe Hospital is the area’s equivalent of a Primary Health Provider in the United States. The hospital is part of the country's medical training program with medical interns on site and with visiting international students and staff. Its training programs are within a quarter-mile walking distance of the Rehab Center.
The hospital is the surgical site for the women and girls participating in the Liberia Fistula Project and is their primary care provider through its clinics. Students at Phebe have direct contact with the fistula survivors throughout their training. The staff and students are dedicated, persevering with very little.
Some of the school’s teaching material dates back to the war years of the 1990s, when many of the materials were carried by staff, on foot, to Monrovia and stored for preservation. The school and hospital have come a long way since those years. The Ebola crisis set the entire nation back but, thankfully, that is in Liberia’s rearview mirror.
Dignity:Liberia has provided some of the items needed by the school. The Ministry of Education requires that the school have "The Oxford Handbook of Tropical Medicine." We provided two copies of the most recent edition. We would very much like there to be enough copies for an entire class to have access to utilize simultaneously. If you would like to help the school, please contact us.
