Description

Red Cross has implemented ebola operations since the outbreak of the epidemic. Operations have benefitted communities and people with high risk. People already affected by ebola are supported by specific activities. Information sharing is targeted to wider population to prevent the transmission. Red Cross works mainly at the community level. In addition Red Cross assists in ebola treatment through Ebola Treatment Centres. There is a lack of qualified personnel. Treatment Centre in Kenema was opened in the mid of September. New Centre has opened in Kono Sierra Leone. Finnish Red Cross supports the centre through logistics, IT and delegates. Previous support from Finland to Red Cross response through Finnish Red Cross and IFRC is 1,2 MEUR.
