Let’s do what we can!
The deadliest Ebola outbreak in history has taken place in West Africa. In February and March the outbreak surfaced in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone resulting in dozens of deaths in the countries. The disease seemed to be under control only to come back with a vengeance in early June claiming more lives. Ebola is a highly contagious disease that causes massive internal bleeding and has an extremely high mortality rate of 60-90 percent.
The Christian relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse is aiding in the fight against Ebola and sending two or possibly more Canadian medical specialists to Liberia. A 14-member Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Assistance Response Team of doctors and nurses from North America will be departing for Liberia this week along with the Canadian specialists.This group will provide medical care to those infected with Ebola and distribute protective clothing, medications, medical supplies and equipment.
Donations are needed to continue in the efforts against Ebola in Liberia. If you would like to donate you may call 1-866-663-6500 or visit SamaritansPurse.ca. Prayers are also welcome!
