Ebola Crisis
Ebola Crisis in West Africa

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

Samaritan’s Purse is aggressively responding in Liberia, where we have had a country office for more than a decade, through our Ebola Community Protection Program.

Samaritan's Purse is providing hygiene training along with infection prevention and control kits to affected communities. The ministry also offers home-based caregiver training and materials. In two areas, we have constructed community care centers that can provide supportive treatment as an interim step before going to an Ebola treatment unit. To support these various efforts, we have airlifted nearly 200 tons of relief supplies to Liberia since October.

Through a massive public education campaign, which included thousands of church leaders, we have already provided potentially life-saving information to more than 1 million people, directly or indirectly, through a variety of events and media.
