Aid agency will be managing Ebola treatment centre by Christmas
GOAL is calling on the Irish artists from the Band Aid single to visit West Africa before Christmas, and capitalise on the public support they have helped generate.

GOAL Chief Operations Officer, Jonathan Edgar will meet with British International Development Secretary, Justine Greening today (Tuesday, November 4th), to discuss the worrying escalation in the number of Ebola cases in the Port Loko region of Sierra Leone.
Although efforts to halt the virus in other parts of the country are starting to bear fruit, the focal point of the crisis in Sierra Leone has now switched to the west, where the number of new cases is rapidly outpacing available beds.

Stunting, or small height based on age, is a problem in many of the countries in which GOAL works. It occurs as a result of long-term, chronic lack of food, as well as a result of poor hygiene, which is an issue because children who have multiple stomach bugs don't get the chance to absorb food properly.
