Your help is needed today to fight the rapid spread of Ebola in West Africa.

Ebola is a highly contagious, deadly virus to which there is currently no vaccine or cure. It is very important to stop the spread, before the virus rages out of control.

Health services are overwhelmed by the outbreak, with many health workers having been infected and a large number having died. Mothers and children are unable to access much-needed health services for treatment of malaria, diarrhea, or even childbirth. Markets have closed making it difficult to access food. A large humanitarian crisis is looming.

World Vision is working urgently to protect children and their families, by educating communities about how to stop the spread of the virus, as well as providing protective equipment. But with your help we can do more.
