On Tuesday July 10th, form 6:30-8:00pm at the Chinatown Branch of the San Francisco Public Library, join EMERGENCY USA - Life Support for Civilian Victims of War and Poverty - to personally experience the beautiful, high-quality EMERGENCY medical facility in Goderich, Sierra Leone. This presentation will take you through the artistically-designed buildings, and give you a chance to “meet” some of the patients, doctors and other hard-working local staff.

Hear about 6-year-old Ibrahim who developed Elephantitis in his foot, and who is receiving treatment at EMERGENCY, and learn about lye poisoning, so unfortunately common in this country, for which special treatment can only be found at theEMERGENCY facility.

Executive Director Eric Talbert has recently returned from Sierra Leone and will guide you through a patient’s experience of attending this free-of-charge, high-quality facility, which you will find is not much different in care and standards than the hospitals we have here in the USA.

Please contact Eric Talbert at 1-888-501-EUSA or atinfo [at] emergencyusa.org with questions.
