Private sector donations portal (LIPSEC) launched to support Government of Liberia COVID-19 response

 


A consortium of the Liberia private sector, the Liberia Private Sector Executive Committee (LIPSEC), launched a virtual web portal that will help the Government of Liberia account for private sector donations in support of the country’s COVID-19 response. The portal collects information about private sector contributions no matter the size or the source of the donations, or whether they are in-cash, in-kind or in-hours. This effort will allow these donations to be potentially available for international donor matching funds to support the most vulnerable in Liberian society.

Here are some of the businesses & individuals:  Aumuo Abdallah, MBL Int. Group, Monrovia Auto Detailers Car rental Services, PIWAL (PHARMACIES IN LIBERIA), U Found Solutions Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers Liberia LLC, ArcelorMittal Liberia Ltd., Liberia-Diaspora Healthcare Task Force, Inc.

Please visit the Portal to verify donations - Enter your phone number to log-in.

We truly appreciate your contribution to the COVID-19 Response.  Attached you will find the list of goods received and the delivery status.

 

The Liberia Chamber of Commerce is working with the Private Sector Engagement Committee (PSEC) under the National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL) and the Ministry of Health (MOH).  The PSEC was first established during the Ebola outbreak.  It was reactivated on March 16, 2020 after the first case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Liberia was reported, tested and confirmed.   The role of the PSEC is to ensure one coordinated response between public and private sector and, where possible, to mobilize resources – pro-bono services, gift in kind donations, etc.

The PSEC structure consists of the Liberia Chambers of Commerce (GSM companies, Hotel Management, Concessions, etc.), the Healthcare Federation of Liberia (laboratory, private clinics, pharmaceuticals, insurance companies etc.), the Liberian Business Association (Small Business Owners, Liberia Market Association etc..) and Others (Salons, supermarkets, etc..).  The PSEC is chaired by the NPHIL/MOH Incident Management System (IMS).  The role of the PSEC is to ensure one coordinated response between public and private sector and, where possible, to mobilize resources – pro-bono services, gift in kind donations, etc.

Our understanding of Quarantined Centers is as follow – there are two types:

  1. Precautionary Observation Centers (POCs): there are 9 – consisting of private hotels & B&Bs.  This is where people who visited hot zones and low risk contacts.

  2. Treatment/Isolation Center: there are 2 Treatment/Isolation Centers.  However only one is currently operating (which is 14 Military Hospital).  This is for the confirmed and close contacts (high risk contacts). 

 

The Private Sector Engagement Committee/NPHIL/MoH will provide a list of all Quarantined Centers (a breakdown of the number of people and the immediate needs of each center.  In the interim, the Chamber will continue to receive donations of goods in Kind for the Treatment/Isolation Center at 14 Military Hospital.
