 A resurgence of the deadly Ebola virus continues to claim lives in the West African countries of GUINEA, LIBERIA, SIERRA LEONE (see map on right) and now NIGERIA. Many of the communities affected are those MedShare continues to serve with medical supplies and equipment. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those impacted by this deadly disease.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that
the current Ebola virus outbreak, which began six months ago,
is now the deadliest on record. 

The news of the death of Dr. Sheik Umar Khan, a MedShare partner and one of Sierra Leone's most respected health professionals, after contracting the Ebola virus, has deepened our commitment to this urgent mission.

We hope you will support our work to assist healthcare professionals in West Africa working tirelessly to treat and prevent the spread of the Ebola virus.
