Ebola Crisis

Ebola virus disease is a deadly hemorrhagic fever rampaging across West Africa. The current unprecedented outbreak has already claimed thousands of lives and threatens millions more.

Samaritan’s Purse is aggressively responding in Liberia, where we have had a country office for more than a decade, by establishing and managing Community Care Centers in areas hit hard by the disease.

Other Samaritan’s Purse public health initiatives in the country include caregiver training and kit distribution, as well as a massive public education campaign focused on infection prevention and control. We have provided potentially life-saving information to more than 1 million people directly or indirectly through a variety of events and media since last March.
