Help Stop Ebola Now
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the deadliest in history. Almost 18,000 cases have been reported since March, and more than 6,000 people have died. Children are Ebola's most vulnerable victims. Over 11,000 children have lost a parent or been orphaned, many of them shunned by their communities because of fear of infection.
We can stop Ebola. UNICEF is at work on the ground across West Africa—airlifting supplies, training health workers and caring for children and their families. UNICEF and its partners have reached more than 5.5 million people in West Africa, distributing critical information and essential materials to health workers and affected communities.
With early treatment, children and their families can survive this disease. Help UNICEF stop Ebola. By helping now, we're helping us all.
During Black History Month, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF is teaming up with African American churches and religious organizations across the U.S. to stop Ebola. The joint initiative, I AM #STOPPINGEBOLA, is raising funds to provide lifesaving hygiene kits to children and families in Liberia, one of the West African countries hardest hit by the deadly virus.
