i-care community

23 July 2014 -- It’s one of the world’s most devastating diseases, which can cause death in up to 90 per cent of cases. And today, an unprecedented Ebola epidemic threatens more than 60 communities in Western Africa. 
As soon as we received the first reports of an Ebola outbreak in Guinea earlier this year, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) acted quickly, sending teams of medical and mental health staff to provide psychological support to affected communities and to help contain the disease.
But Ebola has since spread to Sierra Leone and Liberia in multiple, remote sites, complicating efforts to treat patients and curb the epidemic. Now, we’re asking for your support in these efforts to save lives.
