The Ebola Virus crisis is not yet under control. There are varying reports on casualties but Wikipedia reports over 10,000 deaths in West Africa, but the Ebola tragedy is much bigger than those numbers as the previous post suggests; the stigma associated with the disease means survivors can become marginalized.
Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world. Masanga (Leprosy) Hospital suffered badly from Sierra Leone’s civil war. ADRA helped in the rebuilding process and has worked closely with the hospital in the fight against ebola. Masanga has become a major medical centre with charitable partnerships joining in the fight against the Ebola Virus. Masanga hospital has become a general hospital serving 400,000 people.
