Christmas Eve: RESH in collaboration with the Ebola Scare Initiative-USA donated to our clients in the Bassa Town Community, Paynesville, Liberia. These supplies will help our clients continue on. Thanks to our supporters, including the Ebola Scare Initiative-USA and kudos to volunteer RESH staff who made today a success. We're kicking out ebola. Merry Christmas! #donations
Bassa Town residents who were trained by RESH in the autumn now now do lay counseling in their community. Recently we met again with several of them, and they described RESH's impact in their lives and the lives of Bassa Town Community dwellers. The training sessions are bearing fruit.
Time has named the courageous Ebola fighters as 2014 Person of the Year--it's wonderful to see that their efforts have been noticed. And it's exciting to see that the issue features our friends and supporters Katie Meyler (who has been generous in providing office space for RESH on the More than Me facility) and Dr. Philip Z. Ireland (who is on the RESH Board and whose ebola recovery was a primary inspiration for RESH).
RESH's efforts were highlighted in this article in the newsmagazine Arterial Network. Ebola should not be used as a tool to stigmatize and brand people--rather, ebola should unite Africans and redefine our collective purpose.
