6 years ago today, Nigeria was declared Ebola-free. Exactly 1 year after that, DRASA Health Trust was born to honor the legacy of Dr. Adadevoh and the other health workers who lost their lives in the fight against Ebola.
As with all “newborns” it took us a few months to get going, but since our first programs launched in early 2016, we’ve been on the move – growing and reaching more communities and individuals with every passing year.
Here’s a recap of the last 5 years in numbers:
Today more than ever, we’re committed to ensuring the sacrifices of our country’s fallen heroes were not in vain. We’ll keep pushing forward until we have a safe and healthy society for all.
As always, we’re doing our part by working with schools, communities and health facilities, but we’re also making good progress with our plans to set up Nigeria’s first Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Simulation Training Center: we’re 43% of the way there so stay tuned for updates.
It’s been an amazing journey so far and we thank all our donors, partners, supporters and volunteers. We could not be where we are today without your ongoing contributions and dedication.
Happy 5th birthday to us and cheers to many more years of impact ahead!
