In 2017, we continued our work providing the books lawyers, teachers, professionals in all fields, higher education students and healthcare providers require.
The impact of new medical texts
The medical books we send improve the care that individual healthcare providers can offer and contribute directly to the education of the next generation of healthcare professionals.
In Sierra Leone, the Nixon Memorial Hospital trains over 75% of nurses for Sierra Leone’s Eastern region, yet it had so few books and teaching materials that it was threatened with closure because it did not offer sufficient resources for trainee nurses.
Today, the hospital remains open thanks in large part to the 1,000 brand new medical books we provided in 2017. These books are providing the up-to-date information that trainee nurses require to earn their qualifications.
