Ebola is deadly. But, Ebola can be stopped.
Your financial contribution will help Last Mile Health and partners train and equip many more Liberian health workers in rural areas to prepare for and respond to Ebola.
Our prayers and thoughts are with all who have been affected by this deadly virus in Liberia and neighboring countries. Now is the time to translate thoughts into action. With your support, we can end this outbreak and save lives.
