Fighting Ebola: Four DNA partners on the front line

Share This Post

Very rarely do we ask for donations, but it only seems appropriate considering the crises facing our world today. Please take a moment to read below about four reputable DNA affiliate organizationscourageously fighting Ebola: a virus that is plunging whole communities into deep despair, now bringing local economies, food supplies and years of healthcare advancements down with it. Consider how you can generously support one or more of them.

Please note that we do not want you to send donations to the DNA which is simply an alliance of like-minded organizations. Rather, please give directly to the organizations themselves.

Women-of-Hope-Color-Logo-Web-e1408809835370Women of Hope International, usually focused on empowering and discipling women affected by disability in Sierra Leone, has been forced to shift its focus since the arrival of Ebola in May. Now, about five people in Sierra Leone are diagnosed with Ebola every hour.

Leading the way with truth

So much of Ebola’s power lies in a lack of truth about both the science behind the virus and a biblical response to the crisis. As a result, Women of Hope has developed culturally relevant health-education materials that already have been translated into dozens of languages and freely distributed to literally hundreds of ministries and organizations across 10 countries in the region. Read their lesson “Ebola: A Biblical Church Response,” and click here to download more materials.

Providing literally lifesaving supplies

Evacuations, quarantines, curfews and other government policies intended to stop the virus inadvertently have impeded food production and stopped people from working or earning money. Women of Hope staff are doing all they can to sustain the lives of their own colleagues and the women in their programs during the Ebola crisis. Questions? Email Kim Kargbo.

Now through Oct. 31, all donations to Women of Hope for this crisis will be matched up to $50,000. Please give generously!
