AllAfrica.com is reporting that the HEARTT Foundation has incorporated the “Give a Glove” campaign into their Ebola BlockAID campaign.
The “Give a Glove” campaign aims to use donations to purchase life-saving protective supplies. Supplies that are gathered with donations will be used to treat Ebola as well as Malaria in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. The author writes:
“Despite a minimal national budget and the continuing cost of payment obligations for debts incurred by former dictators, Liberia was rebuilding schools, power plants and clinics and graduating doctors and nurses.
Ebola is reversing those gains. Without a dramatic escalation of help, Liberia will continue to fall apart.”
Due to the lack of supplies, treatable diseases, like Malaria, are ravaging Ebola affected countries, creating a lack of medical treatment for pregnant women and children, many of whom are dying daily.
