Sierra Leone at Epicenter of Ebola Outbreak

     West Africa is currently experiencing the worst outbreak of Ebola since the disease was identified in 1976. Over 1300 cases have been confirmed in the region. Of the 518 confirmed cases in Sierra Leone, 181 have died and 133 have recovered. The lives of the remaining 204 people hang in the balance.

 

     IDEA is partnering with MediSend International and the Nortern Texas-Northern Louisiana Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to send desperately needed medical supplies to Ebola stricken areas in Sierra Leone. (more)

What is the idea for IDEA?

        The idea is that the right gift, at the right time can change the stories of families and communities for generations to come. That 'right gift' is a combination of tools and training.

 

     The IDEA Foundation supports education and health projects in Sierra Leone that provide long-term solutions to the problems facing the country.
