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.
In less than five minutes after it was launched on Monday morning, sales of the Band Aid 30 single, Do They Know It’s Christmas, raised more than £1 million for the fight against Ebola in West Africa.

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.
