BENEFITING: MORE THAN ME
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2014
Ebola cases are finally decreasing. We've started to shift our work from responding to new cases to reintegrating survivors and counseling them and their families. This is a HUGE deal.
Ebola is a poverty issue. It ravaged West Africa because countries like Liberia lack the infrastructure and human capital to deal with any kind of disaster. It will take a sustained effort for Liberia and Liberians to heal.
We want to open our Academy doors to Ebola orphans, like Pearlina and Esther, whose lives have been completely turned upside down due to this epidemic. All schools have been closed since August, but plans are underway to reopen the More than Me Academy this winter and get our girls BACK IN SCHOOL!!
We need your help to ensure that the most vulnerable kids affected by the Ebola outbreak have an opportunity to go to school.
Oh, and did we say donations are matched? All donations up to $50,000 are matched 100% by a very generous donor! Starting NOW until December 25th!
