United Methodist Church’s Global Ministries Creates Long-Term Plan for Ebola Response

The United Methodist Church’s General Board of Global Ministries’ United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is developing a plan to assist with responding to the Ebola epidemic in the long term. To date, UMCOR and Global Health have worked together to ensure that grants totaling $400,000 for educational programs, protective equipment and other Ebola-related supplies have been provided primarily to United Methodist health boards in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire. The group is also reaching out with community education about the disease, health worker protection and counseling for affected people and their families.
