BENEFITING: American Red Cross
The American Red Cross, along with the global Red Cross network, is helping amplify efforts and strengthen capacity of the Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia Red Crosses as a devastating outbreak of Ebola wreaks havoc on the region. Since September 2014, some 5000 cases have been reported and more than 2600 deaths have been linked to the virus, making it the deadliest outbreak of Ebola in recorded history.
Ebola Outbreak is a horror Uco Red Cross Club cannot ignore. We want to raise $3000 .
