Since May 2014, West Africa has been experiencing one of the largest Ebola outbreaks in history. The Ebola virus is highly contagious and can easily spread through human-to-human contact. As of October 22nd, 9,000 cases have been reported in the region including over 4,000 deaths (WHO, 2014). If gone unchecked, these rates are expected to increase.
In response to this crisis, Music for Relief is partnering with International Medical Corps to immediately raise funds for personal protective gear, which will enable health care workers to effectively treat more patients and help stop the spread of Ebola.
