"Being a bystander to suffering is not an option." Those are the words of Katie Meyler, founder of More Than Me and a member of our designedCOLLECTIVE community. For the past nine years, she has been in Liberia providing education and opportunity to the most vulnerable girls in the slums of West Point in Monrovia, and is now channeling her undying spark to fighting against the spread of Ebola.
As the Ebola epidemic continues to spread throughout Liberia, and other parts of West Africa, we here at LOCZIdesign find it important to help in the midst of fear surrounding this epidemic -- spread the positive news. With the World Health Organization recently stating that Nigeria is officially free of Ebola after six weeks with no new cases, it's crucial to keep at a strategy that informs and helps people in affected communities, rather of scaring them off. More Than Me, and how to help Katie Meyler's crusade for saving the lives of young girls in Liberia and those affected with Ebola, click here.
