According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Ebola has taken the lives of 2803 as of September 22, 2014 and about 5843 cases have been reported. The organization continues by saying that 337 health care workers have been infected and more than 181 have died.
My brothers and sisters in West Africa continues to be affected by Ebola and it is time we come together in fighting this dangerous disease before it is out of control. The United Nations (UN) and WHO have said that they need $1 billion to treat those inflected and have the situation under control. I hereby call unto African Leaders to take the initiative and unite against Ebola for the benefit of all Africans. Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo need us now more than ever. This disease has come into the way of these nations working on their respectful economy and hopefully improving the lives of citizens. Throughout history, Africans have suffered and been hit hard with diseases and poverty. We do not need another disease to get into our way of improving our Motherland. I thank the many volunteers, governments, and organizations working hard to support and improving the lives of those in West Africa. We are grateful for the world support, but African Leaders need to join force and step up to the task.
My thoughts and prayers are with those in West Africa and hope the situation will be under control soon!!!!
