This year an unprecedented epidemic affected countries in West Africa. A call went out to other Rotary Clubs from the Rotary Club of Monrovia, Liberia was seeking medical equipment or funds to help them to meet the rising needs in their community to combat the Ebola crisis. 

Rotary Club of Monrovia members were strategically positioned as hospital administrators who could ensure the funds were used on the most important

issues at the time.  The Rotary Club of Scarborough immediately sent funds.  Seen here are members of the Rotary Club of Monrovia distributing:

  • medical equipment to smaller clinics who were under equipped during a time of crisis, and
  • portable thermometers to the police force so that people entering the police station could be monitored for exposure to Ebola.
