In Sierra Leone this epidemic is growing at a rate of 50 new cases of Ebola every day. Our doctors and nurses are working very hard to isolate suspected cases and to assist sick people.

To treat more people with Ebola, we are working to build a second larger center with 100 beds by late November. The new Ebola Treatment Center will be in Goderich, where since 2001 we’ve been running a pediatric and surgical center, which remains the only fully functioning hospital in Sierra Leone since the start of the Ebola crisis.
