DISASTER ALERT: MTI responding to 2nd wave of Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

by Katie Carroll | Jun 25, 2014
Medical Teams International is responding to a second wave of the Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa. We are mobilizing three of our in-country staff to help control the spread. MTI is coordinating with the Ministry of Health and our partner ELWA hospital working in Monrovia to help identify service needs and gaps. Some of our key initiatives to help control the deadly virus involve:
  • Sensitization of the community on how the virus spreads
  • Assessing medicines and medical supply needs
  • Assessing volunteer needs and response
Earlier this spring, MTI was involved in responding to a region-wide outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, providing education, supplies, communication and transportation. As recently as May, the virus seemed largely under control.  Please join us in praying for those impacted and praying that the virus will be contained.
