Code Red for the World Health Organization

Who Health Organization Building-Geneva

Alarming news, for the World Health Organization's handling of the Ebola epidemic, was published by the United Nations' Ebola Interim Assessment Panel.  In a report made public, the UN announced that the “WHO does not currently possess the capacity or organizational culture to deliver a full emergency public health response.” This announcement has sent shock waves throughout the International medical community.  Many have commented that if the World Health Organization cannot "handle" an epidemic, then which International Organization can the world depend on when the next epidemic emerges?


Without volunteers and sponsors, these missions of hope would not occur. Our next medical mission will take place in August. During the month of July, we will begin to send medical supplies and clothing overseas. Consider making a donation today.

Is there no end to the Ebola pestilence that threaten every aspect of life in West Africa and the world? 

Today, Reuters released the mortifying news of a Liberian teenager's death from Ebola. This story comes after the World Health Organization(WHO) announced that Liberia was "Ebola-Free" since it had gone more than 42 days without any new infections.
