        Indiegogo Link http://igg.me/at/africanlb This is the African Women’s Century! African Ladies who Brunch are a New York City based social society of diaspora women. We meet for brunch to connect, support, and inspire one another. 10 members of African Ladies who Brunch (http://africanladiesbrunch.com/) are participating in Mudderella, a 5-mile muddy obstacle course in New York, to raise funds for two nonprofit organizations in Liberia. You can help us support The Franciscan Works Liberian Mission School (https://www.franciscanworks.org/) in Black Tom Town and the More than Me Girls Academy (https://morethanme.org/) in Monrovia. Both provide critical schooling and care to children orphaned by the Ebola epidemic and HIV/AIDS. Any contribution to our pledge helps: At Franciscan Works $3 provides meals and education for a child per day. For More Than Me $4 provides education, health and social services for each girl child per day. Our pledge is in honor of Johnson Moore, a 17-year-old student from Franciscan Works. Sadly Jonathan lost his life to Ebola while caring for his family. Help us support the education of these children by supporting the African Ladies who Brunch's pledge to complete the Mudderella obstacle course.

                • Ebola Survivor: Tejanie

                  Panic, fear, and denial are three of the most common obstacles to curbing an Ebola outbreak, and in the initial months of the outbreak in Liberia, all three were at play. As the number of Ebola cases shot up, suspicions about both the virus and the mysterious centers in which it was being treated also rose. With too few trusted sources of information to resolve doubts, many Liberians denied the virus – which in its early stages, mimics other common West African illnesses – existed. Fearful and misinformed citizens also avoided clinics, hospitals, and Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs), afraid of being misdiagnosed with Ebola or, worse yet, injected with the virus. Tejanie Golafaley of Bomi County, Liberia, was one among these skeptics. In mid-July 2014, Tejanie contracted Ebola from a sick friend after transporting the friend to a local village to avoid detection by health authorities. At that point, Tejanie was not convinced the virus was real and believed that if his friend was sent to an ETU, they would surely die. To their surprise, the two men were rejected from the community in which they sought refuge. When Tejanie himself fell ill, he consulted his sister, a local nurse, who encouraged him to seek specialized care. Afraid of being sent to a treatment center, Tejanie retreated to the bush, dodging road checkpoints, Ebola surveillance officers, and ambulances along the way. Only when his condition worsened did Tejanie leave the bush to accept water from a surveillance officer. The surveillance officer was the trusted source Tejanie needed. After speaking to the officer, Tejanie agreed to visit the Bomi County ETU, where he was treated for four weeks before recovering. Following his release, Tejanie felt a newfound duty to help fellow Ebola victims fight the disease, and signed up to work as a hygienist at the very ETU where he was cured. Watch Tejanie's story from fearful Ebola denier to fearless Ebola fighter. Music: Ryan Huff Editor: Raegan Hodge Videography: Sarah Grile, Morgana Wingard

                  • Ebola Survivor: Foday

                    from Namuh / Added

                    Foday Gallah is a modest man with an admirable goal: to become an anesthetist so that he can help improve the health and well-being of his fellow Liberians. Just two courses away from his first nursing degree, Foday currently supervises a fleet of six ambulances operating free of charge to citizens in Montserrado County, seat of the Liberian capital city of Monrovia. When he joined the ambulance service in February of 2014, the fleet typically received calls to transport ill patients or pregnant women going into labor to nearby health centers. The work was difficult, but the risk to Foday, who is also a paramedic, and his team’s lives was minimal. All that changed in June of 2014, when the Ebola outbreak that had been ripping across Lofa County reached Montserrado. With too few ambulances, too few Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) beds, and too few specialized healthcare workers in his native Liberia to tackle the growing epidemic, Foday knew his country needed him more than ever. So instead of walking away from the job and, with it, the heightened risk of contracting Ebola – a brutal virus that kills by attacking the immune system and causing multi-organ failure – Foday maintained his leading position on the fleet, dispatching units to make pick-ups of suspected Ebola cases across Montserrado County and driving one of the vehicles himself. His goal: to ensure that Ebola patients made it to one of the few ETUs operating in Montserrado County at the time, so that they might survive. The decision to become a frontline responder in the Ebola outbreak almost cost Foday Gallah his life. After responding to the same home numerous times to pick up a total of seven family members, all of whom died, Foday gave his name and number to the neighbors so that the last relative, a four-year-old boy, might be saved if he came down with Ebola symptoms. The neighbors inevitably called, and what happened next solidified Foday’s status as a hero. Foday’s actions earned him a place on one of the covers of the December 2014 TIME Magazine “Person of the Year” edition, which honored the Ebola Fighters. This moving video captures his bravery and altruism. Music: Ryan Huff Editor: Raegan Hodge Videography: Sarah Grile, Morgana Wingard

                    • Humanizing Ebola Treatment: Balancing Clinical Care with Psychosocial Needs

                      02:36

                      from Namuh / Added

                      When Dr. Pranav Shetty landed in Liberia in early August 2014, only two of the country's 15 counties had fully operational Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs): Montserrado County, which is the seat of the national capital, and Lofa County, which is the site of the first confirmed Ebola cases in Liberia. With infection rates on a continuing upward climb across the country, many Liberians were putting themselves and others at great risk by travelling long distances to reach these ETUs, which were stretched beyond capacity and forced to turn patients away due to lack of beds. To help reduce the patient burden on the existing ETUs, Dr. Shetty and his organization, International Medical Corps (IMC), decided to open an IMC-managed, USAID-funded ETU in Bong County. The decision to open a unit in Bong was a strategic one made with the Liberian Ministry of Health and Social Welfare: though the bulk of Ebola cases were in Montserrado and Lofa at the time, numbers in Bong, which lies between the other counties and has a large population, were rising. Save the Children constructed the facility and Dr. Shetty and his team, including many Liberian staff, were left to run it. By September 2014, the Bong County ETU was up and running. Designed with great care for the Ebola patients in mind, IMC decided to also establish a graveyard at the site. The establishment of the graveyard was warmly received by Ebola survivors like Anita Cole, who lost her father to the virus. Funerals and marked graves are a critical part of Liberian culture. Graves are so important that the country has dedicated a national holiday - Decoration Day - to decorating them. The Bong County ETU graveyard has allowed families to be involved in burial processes, which are performed by trained workers in full protective gear, and has provided families with closure by dedicating a grave to their loved one that they can mark and decorate on their yearly holiday. This video pays tribute to Dr. Shetty and the IMC team that made both the ETU and the graveyard possible. Music: Ryan Huff Editor: Raegan Hodge Videography: Morgana Wingard
