More than 2,500 men, women and children have died from Ebola and the World Health Organization has said that the outbreak is "unparalleled in modern times." Families travel for miles and end up sitting outside overwhelmed clinics, waiting to die, because there is no room inside. Nothing could be more wrong
This disease can be stopped. We know what to do. Personnel, materials and international coordination are urgently needed for all countries affected by the outbreak. And the UN estimates that donors need to step up with $1 billion, and that could rise. So we've got to act faster, and do more right now.
World leaders are gathering NEXT WEEK for emergency Ebola meetings at the United Nations. But we need them to do more than just talk at these meetings. We need them to take action.
Urge UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon - who is hosting these meetings - to push these leaders to step up and act on Ebola now.
We're counting on you to pressure world leaders to quickly make bold commitments and help end the Ebola epidemic now.
