Ebola is devastating parts of West Africa. And every day that we continue to wait – for funding to reach the ground, for nurses and doctors to be deployed, for the shattered medical services to be rebuilt - more people die.

Leaders from every nation need to stop waiting and deliver.

Our petition says:

Dear World Leaders,
We’re counting on you to quickly make and deliver bold commitments and help end the Ebola epidemic now.
Delay is a disaster. For too many months, we waited for money and support to be promised. Don’t get us wrong. Some governments - in particular the UK - have stepped up and pledged funds, healthcare workers and supplies, and we need to encourage them to keep moving quickly and get those into the communities that need them.

But we’re still waiting for some countries to do anything at all or to start spending the money they have promised.

In too many places, sick patients are waiting for treatment. Healthcare workers are waiting for supplies. And healthcare systems are completely shattered.

Sign our petition and tell leaders it’s time to stop the outbreak now AND build health systems that could stop crises like this from happening ever again.
Thanks - as always - for your support.

Saira O'Mallie,
