The World Health Organization has declared the recent outbreak of the Ebola virus as an international health concern. Ebola outbreaks can devastate communities, but the infection can be controlled through the use of recommended protective measures in clinics, at community gatherings, and at home.
World Hope International (WHI) is already working in response to this outbreak with the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health. WHI staff are setting up training sessions for health care workers, preparing Sierra Leone hospitals to receive Ebola patients by setting up washing stations in communities, and preparing radio broadcasts to be played in Sierra Leone to advise communities as to what they can do to protect themselves and their families.
Donations are needed immediately to help respond to the needs in Sierra Leone.
We need your help in two ways:
- Pray with us:
- Pray for the healthcare workers that are currently treating patients with Ebola.
- Pray for the patients, those suspected and confirmed.
- Pray for the families who have lost loved ones to this disease or who have relatives in isolation units or treatment centers.
- Pray for the government and the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, that they will make wise decisions quickly.
- Pray for the citizens of Sierra Leone that they would understand that Ebola is a medical disease. Pray that they would start understanding the mode of transmission (how this disease is spread) and the way that they can prevent further spread.
- Support us: We’re working hard to stop the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone, but we can’t do it without you. A gift of just $50 can help raise awareness and support preventative efforts in vulnerable communities.
Will you stand with us as we fight to protect the people of Sierra Leone from the Ebola virus?
Thank you for your continued support,
CEO & President
