We need your support to continue our fight against Ebola in Liberia and in other affected countries. To learn more about how you can help, visit: http://uni.cf/ebola
"I've been in wars. I've been in earthquakes. I've been in conflicts all around the world, and I've never been in a situation like what we're facing today in Liberia," says UNICEF Representative in Liberia Sheldon Yett on the country's fight against Ebola. "Every day we learn of more families, more communities that have been affected by this disease. There's not a pocket of this country, not a corner of this country, that remains unaffected."
To help stop the spread of Ebola, UNICEF has been bringing in hundreds of tonnes of basic medical supplies, such as chlorine to ensure that health centres are disinfected. We've also been providing supplies to households, instructions on how to use them and guidance on how to care for patients safely. We've been working to ensure basic services for children – like school and immunizations – can continue.
