Ebola Awareness

It's now two months ever since the red cross society visted our community.As usually in case of calamities that's when we expect to see red and white for resale.This time there was an outbreak of Ebola actually through out the whole country.No know what?Those guys started sensitising us about different ways how Ebola can affect some one.What surprised me most! are of the presente told us that its a desease for monkeys.I wondered how are human being can be effected with a monkey diseases.Anyway they also taught us different measures of first Aid in case some one is a culprit of Ebola.Oooops they told us that it is most used by people giving first Aid to Ebola culprits.It was so good.
