Field Photos: Ebola Response in Action

by Katie Carroll | Aug 06, 2014

We just received these photos taken today of our Liberian staff who are working to fight Ebola in West Africa. Our local teams are visiting homes in Monrovia, providing residents with brochures about Ebola as well as with buckets for hand-washing to keep at the entrances of their doors. Every person coming or leaving the home should use the hand-washing station to help prevent the spread of the virus.

MTI provides a hand-washing station to a family in Monrovia to keep at the entrance of their home.

Community education is seen by the Ministry of Health & the international community as the best way to attack Ebola. MTI is currently leading the NGOs in Monrovia and coordinating the Ebola response.
