Thank you for those of you who have reached out to Global Strategies and our partners in Liberia during this recent Ebola outbreak. With heavy hearts, we extend our condolences to the family and loved ones of Brother Patrick Nshamdze, Hospital Director of St. Joseph's Catholic Hospital who died from Ebola after taking care of a patient with the disease. For those of you who have travelled to Liberia with Global Strategies, you will remember him as a dedicated administrator and long-time friend. He will be sorely missed.

We have been in regular contact with our partners at the Catholic Health Secretariat since the outbreak began in March 2014. We have received assurances that the healthcare providers in Star of the Sea Clinic, where our project is located, have access to protective gear. At the request of our Liberian colleagues, the Global Strategies project, Advancing Baby Care, is ongoing in spite of the outbreak. The Liberian nurses and doctors asked to continue the work, as babies are still being born and the need for primary healthcare remains.

We are grateful for our partners at the Catholic Health Secretariat who are on the front lines, bravely working to prevent the spread of Ebola in their communities. If you wish to share a message with the family and colleagues of Brother Patrick, please email us at info@globalstrategies.org.
