The recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has taken over 60 lives. One of those lives was a congregant of our local church partner. We plan to aid in stopping this crisis by extending much-needed training and preventative measures to 60 local churches at the epicenter of the crisis. Part of those preventative measures is handwashing stations that will be placed outside the churches for attendees and community members to use freely. This will help stem the tide as the disease spreads through direct contact with the blood or body fluids of infected persons.
