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.
There is little sign that the epidemic in West Africa is being brought under control with cases and deaths increasing
2/10/14 Following the launch of an emergency recruitment drive, GOAL has received over 500 applications for a medical response team to help stop the spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa.
An escalation of fighting in February 2002 between government and rebel fighters in Liberia has led to a state of emergency being declared with thousands of people seeking refuge in Sierra Leone.
