Local Red Cross volunteers are working tirelessly across West Africa.

Daniel leads a Red Cross dead body management team in Sierra Leone. He is working on the front line, fighting the spread of one of the world’s deadliest diseases. Daniel is a volunteer.  

When people die from Ebola, their bodies are still highly infectious. Daniel’s team must take every safety precaution as they give these people a dignified burial, preventing further spread of the disease. It’s a harrowing but vital job and some of his team now suffer from nightmares .  

“I keep going and working… because it is the right thing to do. People are dying and if nobody is managing the dead bodies, the disease is going to spread.”

Please donate today and help protect Daniel and his team. Your donation will supply protective clothing, Ebola-killing chlorine and other critical supplies for our volunteers working across West Africa.

Help stop the spread. Donate today.
