Ireland increases Ebola funding to €350,000

Sherlock noted that: “The continued spread of Ebola is extremely worrying and is having a devastating impact on already vulnerable communities across Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. “Today Ireland is providing an additional €120,000 to help contain the spread of the virus – this brings to €350,000 the total direct funding provided by Ireland in response to the outbreak in West Africa. “This funding is being provided to Irish Aid partners Goal and World Vision Ireland, to support their community-based programmes which will raise awareness of the transmission and prevention of the disease and to assist in its containment.” Sherlock called for a strong international response to the crisis: “I call on the international community to further support these efforts in a coordinated manner through the allocation of more human and financial resources to support these countries. “The Embassy of Ireland in Freetown is continuing to monitor and report on the situation and is engaged in extensive coordination efforts with other Governments and international partners including the UN, EU, and NGOs.”
