Ebola Updates: MTI Expanding Response

by Katie Carroll | Aug 14, 2014

We are so grateful for your continued prayers and donations to our Ebola response. Without you, Medical Teams International would not be able to work to help stop the virus's spread. Thank you.

The Ebola virus continues to spread across West Africa.  In addition to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia, Nigeria now has ten confirmed cases of the virus.

We are ramping up our efforts to fight the spread. MTI Liberian staff continues to educate the community on Ebola protection and containment as well as provide training to health workers.

Additionally, MTI will be:

  • Expanding our response to Monserrado County. MTI is already working in Grand Cape Mount and Bomi Counties. Montserrado currently has the second highest cumulative cases of Ebola in Liberia.  See map.
  • Supporting health workers. MTI staff is providing quality assurance to ensure that health workers are protecting themselves. In doing so, MTI staff will not be exposed to Ebola patients.
  • Increasing capacity. MTI will be providing additional staff to support our current Liberian staff.

We are the lead agency of the Liberia NGOs in Monrovia, coordinating Ebola response: your gift will make a difference!
