Let us keep the Ebola stricken people of West Africa in our thoughts and our prayers. Often we are oblivious about situations until they affect us personally. We have to remember that the more Ebola spreads across Africa the more likelihood it is of spreading to other regions of the world.
So far about five thousand one hundred and sixty persons have died. Liberia has the most deaths followed by Sierra Leone and Guinea. Many children are now orphans because of the disease and we can only hope that a cure will be found soon.
We must pay tribute to Doctors Without Borders who are in the regions treating Ebola Patients, as well as all the other to health worker who are risking their lives to help others. They are the true heroes. Some have died but others continue to fight on. Let us pray that God will grant them the strength and courage to carry on.
