We know you’ve heard a lot about Ebola in the last month. It seems like every half hour there’s another story in the media focused on driving ratings, scoring political points, or needlessly alarming the public.
But none of the irresponsible noise on our airwaves is going to help end the Ebola outbreak that has already claimed 4,912 lives in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
What will help stop Ebola is delivering the support West Africa needs: medical care for the sick. Protective gear for aid workers. Hygiene supplies and outreach campaigns for communities at risk. Humane support for survivors.
Our 22 locally-driven partners have been delivering vital aid since this outbreak began, and they’ll continue to be there to help their communities heal long after it’s over.
GlobalGiving donors have accomplished so much already in the fight against Ebola:
- You’ve helped Develop Africa deliver much-needed protective gear to aid workers in Sierra Leone.
- You’ve ensured that Imani House could upgrade their clinic in Monrovia to care for an influx of new patients.
- You’ve given the filmmakers of WeOwnTV in Sierra Leone the resources they need to produce public service announcements from voices local communities trust.
- You’ve helped International Medical Corps open the sixth Ebola treatment center in Liberia.
- And you’ve supported 18 other GlobalGiving partners fighting the outbreak across West Africa.
