Ebola - West Africa Epidemic - How You Can Help  

We are working to help provide the needed protective equipment / resources to health personnel so that they can keep themselves safe and preventing further spread of the disease. Funds will also enable sharing of information / sensitization (through radio and other media) so that people can take preventive action to protect themselves from infection.  Thousands of lives will potentially be saved from infection and certain death - as this disease is currently incurable.  We are partnering with other platforms like GlobalGiving to raise the needed funds for these activities. Read more... 

 

Happiness is Zero Mosquito Bites  

In Sierra Leone right now, everyone is more eager than ever to stay well. The one good outcome from this Ebola outbreak is that people are more health-conscious than ever before.

The assistance that we are together providing is so very appreciated - at this time -  as it helps people stay well - free from malaria.  In the video linked below, you can see Rugiatu's joy as she receives the new net that YOU helped provide.  She is now safe from irritating mosquito bites, thanks to her new mosquito net.

Health is wellness and happiness.  Happiness is zero mosquito bites.  You have made Rugiatu happy and she can now play and have fun with her friends.  Read more...
