March update - MLD Global Initiative (Elwa Hospital, malnutrition clinic)

A March Filled with Progress and Hope at ELWA Hospital, Monrovia (Liberia)

We're excited to share with you the latest developments from our partnership with ELWA Hospital in Monrovia, where our collective efforts are making significant strides in pediatric healthcare. This March has been a particularly impactful month, especially in battling the malnutrition crisis affecting young children.

Dedicated Care for Hundreds of Children

In March alone, the pediatric ward and emergency room at ELWA Hospital were a hub of activity, with 341 admissions covering a range of medical issues from neonatal sepsis to complex cardiac defects. The dedicated team at ELWA has been providing exceptional care, managing severe cases with precision and compassion.

The Under-5 Clinic has been equally busy, with 652 new little patients receiving treatment. The focus on early intervention has been crucial in preventing complications and ensuring rapid and effective treatment, showcasing the value of timely medical care.

Addressing Malnutrition with Specialized Programs

Our malnutrition programs, both inpatient and outpatient, continue to be central to our efforts in Monrovia. This March, we saw 94 new admissions to our inpatient feeding unit and treated 167 new children in our outpatient program. These programs are not just about treatment but about giving these children a new lease on life, as evidenced by the 116 children who were successfully cured and discharged.

Baby Julia's success story

Spotlight on Success: Baby Julia's Story

This month, we were touched by the story of Baby Julia, a seven-month-old who came to us in a critical state of malnutrition. With her grandmother's perseverance and the accessibility of our services, Julia was quickly admitted and received comprehensive care tailored to her severe condition. Her recovery is a profound reminder of why we do what we do – every child deserves a chance at a healthy life.

Commitment to Education and Continuous Improvement

Our ongoing education initiatives, including the recent ETAT training, are integral to our mission. These programs not only enhance the skills of our clinical teams but also ensure that our care remains at the cutting edge of pediatric health. We're looking forward to more ETAT Plus workshops throughout the year, which will further our team's capabilities and improve patient outcomes.

Together, we are making a difference, one child at a time. Thank you for being part of our community and for your continued support of MyLocalDoc and our global initiatives.
