Since 2010 Seven Hills Global Outreach, an affiliate of the Worcester, MA based Seven Hills Foundation, has partnered with local nonprofits in 8 developing countries supporting schools, medical clinics, birthing centers, clean water projects and micro financing efforts all designed to uplift people out of abject poverty. Seven Hills recently sent a crate filled with medical supplies and computers to its partner in Sierra Leone to help track and then address the outbreak of the COVID pandemic in that country. “Amid a seemingly unending global pandemic, its critical not to lose sight of how this indiscriminate virus is plaguing many impoverished, resource-starved populations abroad. America knows too well the pain and suffering caused by COVID and its variants. However, for unprepared communities where even simple cloth face coverings are scare, a COVID outbreak is devastating”, noted Dr David Jordan, President of Seven Hills and Peter Demko, Seven Hills Advancement Associate. In addition to 23 laptop computers and tablets preloaded with medical reference texts, the shipment to Sierra Leone contains personal protective equipment (PPE) including nitrile exam gloves, medical gowns, and face masks to assist local medical personnel in Sierra Leone, sponsored by Seven Hills , to deliver care to over 17,000 individuals supported in the rural central region of the country. Jordan and Demko hope this single shipment of COVID pandemic supplies will be the first of many being sent from Seven Hills Global Outreach in Worcester, MA to areas around the globe where Seven Hills works.
