Ebola Fight
March 2014 Rotary District 5180 Global Grant 14-10673 Liberia Clean Water, Health and Sanitation project VTT team was deep in Liberia. VTT trained tribal chiefs of 20,000 + villagers on how to prevent the many water borne disease with basic cleanliness procedures new to them. In partnership with Sinkor Rotary of Monrovia an the Liberian Children School Project (LCSP) we developed strong relationships in Liberia, Bong County (70,000pop.). Little did we know how valuable that sanitation training was going to take on a new role?

 2 weeks after VTT team returned to District 5180 home the Ebola killer appeared in neighboring countries to Liberia. It continues to spread because the people and field clinic workers lack the basic hand protection gloves, aprons and Ebola knowledge to protect themselves caring for the infected. Sinkor Rotary immediate Past President Gus Flomo asks Rotarians for help and his wife Cece, Liberian Minister of Certification for RN, LVN an Mid-wife, are our Rotary friends and can deliver the help directly where its needed. Cece (trained@CDC) composed the emergency education and protective clothing plan for first responders and villagers to save lives and stop the Ebola. She needs funding to carry out the emergency plan.
The need is imperative to stop Ebola, consider if Ebola is not stopped where it is today where will it be tomorrow?                                                                  

You and your club can help stop Ebola by providing protective clothing such as rubber gloves and aprons to nurses and other first care health providers. Simple, ordinary, Clorox can kill the Ebola virus on contact.  Ebola is not an airborne virus. The world health organizations are doing a fantastic job with the isolation centers dealing with Ebola infected victims, but the field Health care workers are without support! Rotary can help stop Ebola with minimal expense.
The CDC and other world health experts designed this Ebola health program.  See their full program even including isolation facilities at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/abroad/pdf/african-healthcare-setting-vhf.pdf.   This local clinic subset of that program would be run by our old friends who partnered successfully with us in our ‘Liberian Villages Clean Water & Sanitation’ Global Grant.  They are worried about their family and friends.
If D5180 clubs donate just $1000 each, 3 of the mostinfected counties in Liberia - with about 75 clinics, 150 nurses, and almost 1,000,000 Liberians - can be protected and the nurses can more effectively, more aggressively, treat Ebola.
