Ebola response: Mobilizing communities to stop the spread

Report
Mercy Corps

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to spread, devastating communities and killing thousands. Mercy Corps is mounting a massive public health education campaign to stem the spread of the disease in Liberia, the epicenter of the worst outbreak in history.

So far, there have been nearly 9,000 cases of Ebola reported in the region, which have resulting in more than 4,000 deaths. This week, the World Health Organization’s Dr. Aylward delivered the unsettling news that there could be as many as 10,000 new cases of Ebola every week by December.

In the field helping families stranded by Kashmir floods

Report
Mercy Corps

The Mercy Corps emergency team in Kashmir was on their way to deliver supplies in Bandipora district when they met Fatima — a 27-year old mother who was making the long trip home after traveling to a nearby village to gather a pot of clean water. She was waiting for a boat to take her across the floodwaters and explained that it can take her up to two hours just to make the trip for water each day.

Like many people in Bandipora district, Fatima lost nearly everything in last month’s Kashmir floods and worries most about her family and her children.

World + 4 others
Q+A: How we help girls fulfill their potential

Report
Mercy Corps

Being a girl comes with a steep set of challenges, especially for girls growing up in some of the world’s toughest places. Gender inequality is apparent right from the start, and many girls never have the opportunity to go to school, earn an income or have a voice in their own lives or their communities.

All over the world, Mercy Corps is working to change that by supporting girls’ education, providing vocational training and working with communities as a whole to help them understand the value that women and girls bring to society.
