Help Stop Ebola Now
The Ebola outbreak in Liberia is over, but the epidemic in West Africa remains the deadliest in history. More than 26,000 cases have been reported since March, and more than 11,000 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 across West Africa—airlifting supplies, training health workers and caring for children and their families. UNICEF joins Liberia in celebrating its victory, but warns that the threat won't be over until there are no more cases in Sierra Leone and Guinea.
Help UNICEF stop Ebola. By helping now, we're helping us all.
During Black History Month, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF teamed up with African American churches and religious organizations across the U.S. to stop Ebola. The joint initiative, I AM #STOPPINGEBOLA, raised funds to provide lifesaving hygiene kits to children and families in Liberia.
