Ebola: curse and crisis that inspires the next generation

Meet Corrie

Corrie BillboardNumbers help to tell the story of the progression of a terrible disease like Ebola, but behind every number is a person, like Corrie.  Corrie is my neighbour in Yekepa, Liberia.  She is an exceptionally bright 17-year-old with dreams of becoming a doctor as seen in this billboard on the road from Yekepa to Ganta in Nimba County, Liberia. Nimba County only has one ambulance and yet places like Yekepa are an 8.5 hour drive away.  More Jeep ambulances are needed to get through the mud of the rainy season and the dust and potholes of the dry season.remember Corrie, my neighbour.  Give her a future and give her beautiful country of Liberia a future too.  Do something about this crisis. Get involed.
