  • Harvard Business Review acknowledges MTI's fight against Ebola

    by Kristin Simpson | Dec 31, 2014

    Harvard Business Review’s recent insightful article featured MTI’s work to “collaborate across boundaries” to stop the spread of Ebola.

    Thanks to our generous donors and supporters, when the Ebola outbreak started ravaging West Africa, MTI was already there—ready to help. After providing community health care in Liberia since 2003, we became a leader in the fight against Ebola. Responding to requests for assistance from other NGOs as well as the Liberian Ministry of Health, the CDC, and the World Health Organization, MTI expanded our community health programs to all fifteen Liberian counties--improving safety in communities, families, and health clinics through education and training.

    As the article states, “the ‘teaming of teams,’ as it were — will be essential in elevating global response and finally turning the tide against the disease.’

  • Mobile Dental Success Story: Cecilia's smile

    by Tyler Graf | Dec 29, 2014
    Medical Teams International volunteer Joy Temple brought us a success story from a recent mobile dental clinic, with photos from volunteer Doug Vorwaller.

    Fourteen-year-old Cecilia arrived to Medical Team International’s mobile dental program in anguish. 

    Cecilia bumped her teeth one day, causing her face to swell and her teeth to ache. The pain was so great that she took several days off of school to recuperate. When the pain became too extreme, Cecilia and her mom visited the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, where she was referred to MTI’s mobile dental clinic.

    It turns out Cecilia had nerve damage and an infection in one of her teeth. She would need a costly root canal in order to save the tooth. Her family did not have the money for such an operation. But a volunteer dentist was able to approve and pay for root canal surgery the following week to fix the damage and save the tooth.

    Through your generous gifts, Cecilia is no longer in pain. Her broad smile remains gap-free. Because of donations to the Mobile Dental program, MTI is able to provide free or low-cost urgent dental care services to patients who lack dental insurance or the money necessary to pay for urgent dental needs. Every dollar makes a difference.

    Cecilia is recovering and is thankful for being pain free thanks to you!

    Thanks to your support, health workers at Jamaicia Road Health facility in Liberia are receiving proper training on how to protect themselves from infection.

    Jamaicia Road Health facility was one of many health clinics that closed due to the spread of Ebola.

    Because of your gifts to our Ebola response efforts, Jamaicia Road Health facility is  prepared and ready to serve the community. You helped train staff on improving infection control measures at health facilities and establishing triage areas that are isolated from Outpatient Departments. You also helped send Personal Protective Equipment suits (PPEs) and gloves for health workers -- thank you!

    Check out these pictures of your gifts at work!
