We are keenly aware of the increased economic problems this outbreak can cause if not halted soon.

AmeriCares accepted a $2,500.00 donation from the Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council (GNEMSDC) for the Ebola crisis in West Africa. The money is earmarked to provide life-saving medicines, critical aid on-the-ground and for health worker protective supplies.

The Ebola outbreak is now declared to be an international public health emergency by the World Health Organization. The disease will rapidly spread to an estimated 1.4 million in Liberia and Sierra Leone if more is not done today to support health care workers, provide care and educate the public about the epidemic.

“Our organization has a long-standing global perspective on building strong business communities. That includes providing equitable resources to everyone, especially healthcare and emergency support”, stated Tom Davis, Vice President External Supplier Diversity, Cartus and Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the GNEMSDC. He continues, “We are keenly aware of the increased economic problems this outbreak can cause if not halted soon.”
