For a start, you can donate! Most of us are lucky to have the lives we have. Others aren’t so lucky and need our help. Nearly 5000 people have died of Ebola, 10,000 have been infected. Without adequate protection and disease prevention strategies in place, the transmission of Ebola will continue to escalate. It is vital that we step up our efforts to contain and stop this deadly disease. Please donate to help stop the spread.
