HealthPage Liberia Inc is an international 501C (3)/NGO that airlifts vulnerable, medically fragile children from Liberia, West Africa to various countries, specifically the United States for treatments and surgeries due to Liberia’s post war medical incapability. Located both in Liberia and the United States, we are dedicated to providing healthcare and educational services to children from low socio-economic backgrounds.
Healthpage Liberia, Inc started its Medical Evacuation in 2007, when it airlifted two cardiac children, and then the Conjoined Twins all enroute to the USA. With continued services, and the desperate needs of poor and vulnerable children that without this service have no medical chance for life threatening situations, it became an NGO on December 7, 2009.
To date, in its thirteenth year has airlifted over 200 plus Vulnerable Medical Fragile children to various countries for treatments and surgeries and in continuance.
Upon learning of Healthpage Liberia Inc’s humanitarian efforts, UNMIL, who was in Liberia at the time, overwhelmingly became its Logistical Partner, flying the kids from all villages to the city for ongoing treatment. These trips included Mercy Ships in both Benin and Togo, flights to Ghana, the US, and a host of other destinations. UNMIL’s kind gesture was followed by Brussels Airlines, who was instrumental in flying us to Save a Child’s Heart in Israel. Wonderful people like Dr. James Tomarken of the Clinton Foundation who even traveled with the CEO, children and parents for services and Mr. Bill Martin of Mercy Ships who introduced us to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana that cared for a bulk of our patients to date. Last, but not least, a special recognition is owed to Mr. Steve Diamond, who recommended us to Arlene Rhodenbeck, Executive Director of Healing The Children, FL-GA, our Supreme Donor over a decade now and in continuance, that continue to pay for various services, and cardiac surgeries.
As the airlifting continued, we realized that many of the children returning to Liberia after surgery did not have a place to live or opportunities to attend school. As a result, we opened a group home to house the said students. At the group home, we had children with down syndrome, cerebral palsy, just to name a few. Having provided this service, we realized the need and decided to open Liberia’s first special needs daycare center, which served as a beacon of hope in a society that shuns children with special needs and has no system in place to educate them.
