COVID-19 Preparation at Bongolo


MedSend grant recipients Zach and Jen O’Connor are surgeons serving in Gabon. We reached out to them to find out more about the COVID-19 preparations at their hospital.

Dr. Jen reports: “In Gabon, there are  21 cases in the capitol. Our hospital has put a huge plan into place as well as an area to treat up to 15 patients with covid-19.  Our borders are closed and the embassy arranged an evacuation flight for Tuesday.  We decided the Lord really wanted us to stay. So we are in this together!”

In this video, Dr. Zach provides an update on the COVID-19 prep at Bongolo:
