Since January 2014, more than 6,000 people have fallen victim to the Ebola virus, and nearly 3,900 people have died in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, and Senegal in the worst-ever outbreak to date. Liberia has declared a national emergency. Eight other countries in the region remain on high alert.
The Ebola virus can be spread through direct contact with bodily fluids from infected people or animals, and there is no cure.
Communities, especially children, living in the border areas between Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone are vulnerable to the virus and need your help.
Your donations will enable us to:
- Educate communities about the Ebola virus—what it is and the measures that can be taken to contain the virus and prevent it from spreading
- Ensure that accurate public health information is being disseminated through posters, leaflets, and public service announcements delivered via text messages, radio segments, and television spots
Thank you for your generous gift.
Your tax-deductible contribution will be used to aid the regional authorities in logistics and the distribution of public health information. If the need is filled, we will apply your donation to wherever the need is greatest.
