The second-deadliest Ebola outbreak in history has taken the lives of more than 1,600 people in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. Save the Children reports that the virus has killed hundreds of children, and the number of people infected is growing daily. There are several nonprofits working to stop the epidemic.
You can support their teams as they train health care workers to strengthen infection control practices and set up handwashing points at health centers and decontamination bases.
The funds also go toward expanding community awareness campaigns to make sure people know how to prevent the disease, recognize the symptoms and get help. Support them by clicking the “Take Action” button above or by going directly to the Public Good campaign here.
