Did you know… estimates suggest that without rapid action, 1.4 million people could be infected with Ebola by Christmas? CAFOD has released £200,000 to our partners in Sierra Leone and Liberia, but we need to raise more money to scale up supplies of hygiene materials and protective equipment, to support safe burial practice. With much fear and denial on the ground, raising public awareness is a good line of defence. Robust action now means that we can save lives. With CAFOD, the Church is on the front line of efforts to halt the spread of the virus.
