helping in the fight against ebola

Following an appeal from the Rotary Club of Monrovia, Liberia, the Rotary Club of Queenscliffe donated US$2,000 to the fight to contain ebola.

The Rotary Club of Monrovia is working directly with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Liberia to enhance local support for Ebola patients, health workers, and support personnel. Rotarians are soliciting funds to buy locally available items, providing much needed transportation, tracking potential Ebola cases, and supporting the reintegration of those who have recovered from the virus.

Funding for the Monrovia project will also be used for local vehicle repair, fuel, medicine, mattresses, buckets, and other supplies. The Monrovia club has also asked for donations of gowns, gloves, face masks, shoe covers, plastic boots, and, sadly, bodybags.
