"Ebola is a terrible disease that is causing great devastation in West Africa, and that’s where the help is needed. It’s like fighting a fire. You have to spray the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire, not just at the top of the flames -- or you’ll never put the fire out."
-- Dr. Kent Brantly
Doctors. Engineers. Scientists. Soldiers. Whatever skill they can offer, whatever sacrifice they must make, Americans from across the country are putting themselves on the front lines of the fight against Ebola in West Africa in order to save lives. They’re heroes -- and the people in West Africa need more like them to help ensure we bring an end to this devastating outbreak at its source.
Listen as a few of our health care workers talk about why they're committed to America's mission in West Africa -- then share their voices of courage with your friends and family.
From technical support to medical supplies to people on the ground, there’s much more we must provide to help contain and ultimately eliminate the threat of this disease.
