Supporting our partners from afar

Today, CSI volunteers would be departing for our first surgical trip of 2021 — to Liberia. While it’s difficult to see these canceled trips pass, we keep our promise of working to reduce health care disparities. Through donation outreach efforts, a very successful supply sorting session at MATTER and our ability to reach into our own inventory, a large shipment of supplies is currently on its way to Liberia!

We’re proud to provide requested medical and surgical supplies, plus coveted PPE, to our longtime partners at Firestone Duside Hospital. In addition, some of these supplies will be headed to LEAD Monrovia Football Academy. To supplement our community outreach efforts in Liberia, CSI has consulted with the LEAD staff to help them establish a new in-house health clinic. We will provide supplies, professional training and ongoing consultation to help the academy better meet the health care needs of their young student-athletes.

This shipment contains donated new supplies, valued at more than $40,000. Thanks to our medical volunteers and incredible local and international partners, the cost to CSI was only a fraction of the value. We are deeply grateful for the strong partnerships that make this possible.Thank you, Firestone Natural Rubber Company, Murphy Warehouse Company, LEAD and MATTER. Together, we are strengthening communities and making a lasting impact.
