Ebola response

West Africa's Ebola outbreak killed thousands of people, devastated communities and wreaked havoc on local economies. Liberia, where Mercy Corps has worked since 2002, was one of the hardest-hit countries.

During the height of the outbreak, we led a public health education campaign that equipped 2 million people with the information they need to protect themselves against the virus. Today, we're working to support people who are still recovering from the disastrous emotional and economic impacts of the outbreak.

We distributed emergency food and cash assistance so vulnerable families can buy supplies at their local markets. We also provided seeds and tools to help farmers restart their livelihoods, and we continue to work with community health organizations to bolster preparedness against future outbreaks.
