Summary

West Africa is experiencing the largest Ebola outbreak in history. This project will help to stop the Ebola crisis through a set of strategic actions including providing critical resources (personal protective clothing, medical equipment and supplies etc), Ebola training / sensitization, health kits, emergency relief aid and other support activities. Our targeted response addresses key areas of need to provide essential support to health workers, medical facilities and vulnerable communities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The health system in Sierra Leone has been overwhelmed by the extent of this Ebola epidemic. Tragically, the death count continues to rise, including that of nurses and doctors. A wide range of resources are needed to tackle Ebola. This epidemic has disrupted life in many communities and cities. The implications and ripple effect of the crisis are being felt at multiple levels and causing untold suffering and hardship. Responding to this crisis requires a set of strategic and targeted actions.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will help to tackle Ebola through strategic, responsive and focused actions. Our targeted responses are directed towards 3 essential areas - crisis containment, community sustenance and disease elimination. Project will provide critical support and resources including personal protective equipment and medical equipment and supplies, sensitization (through one-on-one, community outreach etc.), health supplies / kits and emergency food aid.

Potential Long Term Impact

This virus could eliminate a significant percentage of the population of Sierra Leone and extend to other African and international countries. This could cripple nations. People are living in fear and facing economic hardships. Our joint, strategic intervention will result in thousands of lives being potentially saved from infection and death. Project will help tackle Ebola and restore normalcy to the people of Sierra Leone - so that they can move on to rebuilding their lives and nation.
