As the Ebola outbreak in West Africa infects thousands and kills more than half of its victims, taking a particularly heavy toll among health workers, the VP of our Emergency Team on the ground in Liberia summed up the stakes in this global health emergency, “If we don’t support the frontline health workers, there is no hope for controlling the epidemic.”
We have already sent multiple emergency shipments of over 4 million units of protective and treatment supplies to keep these brave health workers safe while our team works with our partners in country to fight the disease. Your support will help AmeriCares protect health workers, expand Ebola treatment services, prevent additional infections through community engagement, restore and increase access to health services and establish a lasting culture of health worker and patient safety. YOU CAN HELP US fight this battle:
· Join our fundraiser: Start your own page and mobilize your family, friends and community to help.
· Donate to our fundraiser: Every single dollar raised can help save lives. And since we leverage every dollar donated to deliver $20 in aid each dollar can do so much more.
AmeriCares is an emergency response and global health organization committed to saving lives and building healthier futures for people in crisis in the United States and around the world
