Help us Stop Ebola
Save the Children is doing everything in its power to give the best possible support to those suffering from
this terrible virus and prevent it from continuing to spread, putting even more children’s lives at risk.
Not only are children in danger from the Ebola virus, they risk losing their parents or caregivers to the virus, leaving them vulnerable and without support.
Even if they and their loved ones avoid infection, the growing crisis increases the likelihood of children missing out on the healthcare, education and protection they need to survive and fulfil their potential. This crisis is bringing already fragile countries to the brink of collapse.
We must act now to stop this epidemic spreading before it destroys the futures of an entire generation of West Africa's children.
Save the Children has been on the ground in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia since the crisis began.
Their priority is to stop the spread of the disease and bring Ebola under control by running mass prevention and awareness campaigns.
They are also setting up and managing health centres where Ebola sufferers can be isolated and treated.
So far, they have reached more than 265,000 people through their response. But there are 2.5 million children under five in the risk areas: we must do more to protect them.
"We do just need people to GIVE and are hugely grateful to those who already have. After all, an epidemic like this could hit anywhere in the world. It’s hard for us to imagine the fear and anxiety and suffering going on in those countries and we need to get people to stop and think about what it would be like, here in Kent…."
Save the Children is hugely grateful for the support of Cranbrook Art Show this year and in many previous years. Thank you for making a difference to children’s lives here in the UK and all over the world.
