AJWS has been working in Liberia for more than a decade, and when the outbreak began, our grantees turned to us
for help. They told us that the most pressing need in their communities is to address the fear and misinformation
about Ebola—to quell the panic and to teach people about how to protect themselves. These local activist groups
were well positioned to take this work on, because they were already well-established and trusted members of
AJWS donors have responded generously to this call, contributing more than $1 million, so far, to help us fund
these life-saving efforts.
