Milagro Gives to M├ędecins San Frontieres

Milagro's Board approved a $20,000 grant to support the Ebola Crisis in West Africa.

MSF’s West Africa Ebola response started in March 2014 and now counts activities in three countries: Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

MSF currently employs 270 international and around 3,018 locally hired staff in the region.

The organization operates six Ebola case management centers (CMCs), providing approximately 600 beds in isolation.

Since the beginning of the outbreak, MSF has admitted more than 4,900 patients, among whom around 3,200 were confirmed as having Ebola. Around 1,140 have survived.

More than 877 tonnes of supplies have been shipped to the affected countries since March.

The estimated budget for MSF’s activities on the West Africa Ebola outbreak until the end of 2014 is 46.2 million euros.
