Ebola Virus Threatens Bo Hospital, Sierra Leone


Ebola Virus Threatens Bo Hospital, Sierra Leone


RNZWCS Limited (Rotary New Zealand) is collaborating with Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd who has registered a project in Bo, Sierra Leone to build and extend the Bo Children’s Hospital and provide basic health care education. The hospital’s desperately needs an isolation ward. A quarantine ward which had been planned for some time has also now become an immediate necessity. The funding shortfall is NZ $45,000.

Currently the Ebola virus is highly contagious and has no known cure. The latest information available from Sierra Leone Government Ministry of Health (29th August 2014) is the country has recorded 1033 cases with 383 deaths (including 140 health workers).

In the nearby town of Kenema, an hours drive from Bo, 173 deaths have been reported with an additional 64 cases in isolation, Bo has incurred six deaths.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf.
