They’ve come from many backgrounds, all walks of life, from the US, Liberia and other countries – all sharing the same goals of saving lives and halting the spread of the Ebola virus.
These are our People of the Year, these are our heroes. These doctors and nurses, logistics specialists, humanitarian aid workers, cooks, security, ambulance drivers and chlorine sprayers – all who have given their time and talents to step into the hot zone of the Ebola epidemic with Heart to Heart International. We couldn’t be prouder of their service with us and for humankind.
Recently, TIME magazine chose to recognize the heroic efforts of those on the front lines of the Ebola fight, choosing the Ebola Fighters as their “Person of the Year 2014”. They saw that the people who have chosen to fight the epidemic, that put their lives on the line each and every day to help people and to help stop this terrible disease, are truly heroic in every sense of the word.
We at Heart to Heart recognize the actions of our own Ebola Response Team members – their courageous, valiant efforts. We know it’s difficult work. Several have already come face to face with the terrors of the virus. And we know that we couldn’t tackle this without them.
Our team members are hard at work. Our Ebola Treatment Unit nears completion. Progress is being made. Please continue to support this critical effort.
