The WHO recently declared an end to Ebola as an international public health emergency. While smaller clusters of cases may still arise in in West Africa, they are becoming less frequent and the affected countries have responded quickly to limit the spread of new cases. Your donations have supported organizations on the ground as they have played a crucial role in preventing and treating Ebola:
In Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, International Medical Corps continues to invest in surveillance efforts, ensuring that new Ebola cases and chains of transmission are quickly identified and isolated.
Develop Africa is supporting 22 Ebola-affected children, who are excited to be working on their education after the crisis shut schools for nine months last year.
THINK also continues to support children affected by the outbreak in Liberia with basic necessities and schooling, and recently hosted “Clowns Without Borders” to bring joy to more than 1,000 children.
Support from GlobalGiving donors like you has made it possible for our nonprofit partners to provide immediate and long-term relief for communities impacted by the Ebola outbreak, earthquakes in Japan, Ecuador, and Nepal, and the Syrian refugee crisis. At this event you’ll have the opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from staff who were on the ground during disasters, including. one who used technology to find homes for children orphaned by the Ebola epidemic.
