The spread of THE EBOLA virus in West Africa is alarming, and the death toll continue to rise. The survival rate of anyone contracting this disease has been estimated at 60%. This EBOLA virus is real, and has hit our country Liberia, and other West African countries very hard. The Liberian Community Association of Connecticut in collaboration with the Faith Revival Temple Church of West Haven is calling on all Liberians, Friends of Liberia, individuals and organizations to help save lives in Liberia. Our collaborating friends at Faith Revival Temple Church are 501c3 charity organization and will provide you with any information for tax purposes.
We are receiving donations, storing them and shipping from the USA to Liberia.
