Materials, food and supplies for health workers and patients
The Ebola hemorrhagic fever has caused 518 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia since February 2014. Health officials in Liberia are struggling to contain the virus. During the induction statement for the new corps of officers, the President of the Rotary Club of Monrovia, Rotarian Victoria Cooper-Enchia, announced the club’s contribution of $1,000 to support the Ministry of Health in its response to the Ebola epidemic. The club provided 10,000 gloves to the Ministry of Health for distribution to health workers, 10 of whom have already lost their lives during the epidemic and continue to serve on the front lines of battling the outbreak. Liberia’s Minister of Health, Dr. Walter Gwenigale alongside Deputy Minister and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Bernice Dahn received the items and committed that they will be immediately distributed to their health care workers at centers across the country.
