Ebola Crisis

Currently the town of Waterloo is undergoing immense pressure to cope with the deadly Ebola virus. We are helping as best we can to alleviate this. We are doing this via education and distribution off food to quarantined homes and feeding orphans who are reported to be sleeping in Waterloo Market.

  • Need

    Need

    The problem of lack of education is making it difficult to stem the spread of the Ebola virus. Recently we have been made aware of several hundred Ebola Orphans who are starving and sleeping rough.

    Solution

    We have and will continue to run education sessions to sensitize people as to how they can prevent catching the Ebola Virus and we are now involved in daily food distribution to the quarantined families and Ebola orphans.

  • Aims
