A changing Strategy is reflective of the ongoing persistence of deaths despite all present efforts.

Perhaps, the new way of approaching vaccination will protect more people at risk to Ebola.

The fear that is generated by ongoing violence may be better understood through accepting new vaccinations and these new ways to help more people.

Please support this effort.

There is trouble in this District republic of the Congo in the form of a nasty virus called Ebola.

Many people have died, been infected and some have recovered from this virus.

The numbers have slowly increased over the last four months, but the authorities have been pushing to maintain control over a serious situation.

Globally, China, USA, Canada and many others have been offering support and assistance as the problem continues to grow.
