Summary

The most densely populated slum in the Republic of Liberia, West Point is home to an estimated 60,000 women, men and children. A single confirmed case of Ebola could be completely devastating to the entire community. Preventing the spread of the disease from the remaining population would be extremely difficult.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This outbreak of Ebola (or Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever) is the worst outbreak in recorded history and the Republic of Liberia has become one of the hardest hit countries, along with Sierra Leone and Guinea.

How will this project solve this problem?

Founded in 2002, West Point Women for Health and Development is a front-line advocate in the areas of hygiene, clean water, and the protection of women and girls. They are perfectly positioned to engage in training around Ebola awareness and prevention and for the last three weeks have been providing education and supplies to the citizen of West Point. But like other NGOs this crisis has taken a toll on their resources and they cannot continue this work without additional resources.

Potential Long Term Impact

Curtailing the disease as quickly as possible is not only critical to the immediate health and welfare of the West Point community, but failing to act has extremely poor implications for being able to provide even basic health services, or access to clean water and food.
