Welcome! The Zoe Geh Foundation was formed in 2008 to further the completion of the Zoe Geh Medical Center project and to engage in fund-raising for the healthcare needs in poverty-stricken areas of the world.
The Zoe Geh Medical Center project began in 2004 at the initiative of Peter and Betty Weato, Liberians who, in 1993, had been displaced during the civil war when Mr. Weato was attending medical school in Monrovia, Liberia. It is estimated that more than 750,000 people live within 50 miles of the Zoe Geh Medical Center. The closest health care facility is the Ganta Methodist Hospital, approximately 100 miles away by mainly unpaved roads (4 hours by 4-wheel drive vehicle). The people of Zoe Geh District, Nimba County, suffer and frequently die from infectious diseases (including malaria and tuberculosis), inadequate prenatal and postnatal care, malnutrition, waterborne diseases and diseases of poor hygeine. Almost 1500 children die needlessly every year in Nimba County, many from preventable illnesses.
Zoe Geh Medical Center serves over 100 patients a day with drug and medical treatments provided by physicians, surgeons, PA's and nurses and other staff. Patients walk from all over eastern Liberia and Ivory Coast to be treated at the clinic and hospital.
Zoe Geh needs your help. Please consider making a gift today.
