The Liberia Philanthropy Secretariat is working to coordinate the treatment and prevention of Ebola in the country. Funds from this project will cover the costs of shipping much-needed medical equipment and supplies into the country. The Secretariat will also provide funds to local groups providing support on the front lines of this epidemic on the ground in Liberia, including West Point Women and Kriterion Monrovia.
West Africa is experiencing the biggest Ebola outbreak in history. Almost 1,000 people have already died, and Liberia is one of the hardest-hit countries. Resources are needed to treat victims, educate communities, and work to prevent the further spread of this epidemic.
This project will support the Liberia Philanthropy Secretariat as it works to bring medical supplies in the country and works with local grassroots groups to prevent the spread and treat the victims of Ebola.
There is currently no vaccine or cure for Ebola. This project aims to treat those who are currently infected, and to prevent the further spread of this epidemic.
