An Ebola outbreak has a lasting impact on the countries where it strikes. It takes the work of dedicated individuals to slow the transmission of the virus, secure the supplies they need and educate communities about the disease. At Mercy Corps, we have the courage and strength to face Ebola and all the challenges it brings as we work together. We also have supporters like you, who make sure that we can reach more people with the aid they need to build stronger lives.

Our work has shown us that human beings are incredibly resilient. Our team of humanitarians, who help communities in over 40 countries, has seen resilience triumph over adversity time and time again. We know that together we can build strength and stability in communities weakened by Ebola, and we can empower people to survive despite any setbacks.

With your help, we can do even more to help families affected by Ebola.

Your support is critical. Help us continue our work to fight Ebola.
