August 7th, 2014
I’m delighted to announce that Our Africa Blog has partnered up with Mami Wata Inc to assist on the project: Ebola 2014.
Mami Wata Inc. Is an organization that provides community education and training to implement clean water and clean energy systems in order to facilitate the development of a healthcare system, industries, and an educational standard for the people of Sierra Leone.
The project, Ebola 2014 will be working to combat against Sierra Leone’s current Ebola virus outbreak. We ask our tumblr family to join in and help us out. We are looking for people to make donations in the form of cleaning materials and medical supplies. Items include (but does not limit to):
hand sanitizer, latex gloves (all sizes), fluid protection goggles, surgical scrubs, surgical gowns, bleach, surgical masks, rubber boots, hydrogen peroxide, band aids, gauze & rubbing alcohol.
As of August 7th, 2014, the virus has claimed the lives of 932 people and the cure still hasn’t been found. The best we can do is help those in the affected areas stay safe and help prevent the disease from spreading.
