An Ebola is Real sign in Monrovia, Liberia.

As many of you may have heard from various news outlets, Liberia has declared a state of emergency for the entire country. All schools and non-essential government services have been shut down. There are curfews and restrictions on movements throughout Liberia. Most health clinics remain closed throughout the country, and as a result many more people are dying not just from Ebola but from malaria and other extreme ailments that aren’t being properly treated. In light of this desperate need, the clinic Liberia Now works with has decided to remain open to serve these Liberians in need of vital medical attention.

Any donation you make towards the Ebola Emergency Outreach fund will help this Liberian clinic to keep it’s medical workers safe by purchasing the necessary protective gear needed to combat the spread of Ebola through contact with patients. It will also be used to purchase scarce testing equipment that is needed to ascertain whether one has Ebola or not.

On top of this, Liberia Now is beginning a community outreach to the entire Virginia community where the Ebola virus has spread. Virginia is a suburb of the capital city of Monrovia and houses 50,000 people. Liberia Now will be distributing to every home in the Virginia Community a cleaning station for anyone entering a home. This cleaning station will allow every home to have a cleaning bucket for water and the necessary cleaning supplies to throughly rinse, wash and disinfect all persons entering their household. This is one of the primary safety precautions the government in Liberia is encouraging all citizens to do, but many don’t have the funds to purchase a cleaning station for their own home.

Please be sure to designate your online gift to the Ebola Emergency Outreach once the payment option appears. Thanks so much for your huge heart to help the Liberians who are in dire need of any help we can provide them during this crisis.
