The ebola treatment centre has now been set up in the Police Training Academy on the outskirts of the village, and the UK Government is setting up another one on the Hastings airfield. But ebola has reached the Hastings community itself. Experience elsewhere has shown that health workers are at grave risk, and so are their families. We need to do EVERYTHING we can to provide Sallu, the Hastings health centre manager, and his amazing team with the best possible chance of coping with the threat. With funding from the Link, the men of the village have rebuilt the water-tower and topped it with a new tank, so that basic hygiene precautions can be kept up. In addition, we have sent out 55 boxes of disinfectant, soap, rubber gloves, face masks and other preventative measures. But we must keep these first supplies topped up, and the health centre staff really need much better protective gear. Please encourage your friends and neighbours to respond to this urgent appeal. You and they can donate by hitting the Donate button above.
Please rest assured that every penny will be spent directly on protecting the health centre and the people of Hastings SL.
