Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
