Doctors Without Borders (DWB) revealed today that nine of its staff members who had risked their lives fighting Ebola in West Africa have died.

DWB is the first to respond to the Ebola crisis in West Africa in March. It currently operates six centers in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, with a total of 600 beds. Its personnel on the ground have grown from about 650 at the start of August to about 3,000 currently.

They are doing important work on the ground. Please donate to Doctors Without Borders to help fight against Ebola in Africa. http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/our-work/medical-issues/ebola (clickable below in comment)




The monthly donation is less than the price of one lunch meal. We may help a little bit without doing anything, except skipping lunch once a month. Ebola is serious enough to wake us up. Thanks.
