Save the Children Receives Largest Private Donation to Date
 to Fight Ebola

$6.6 Million Grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation to Provide Emergency Health Support and Education for Children in Liberia


  Save the Children received today its largest private donation to date for its Ebola response. The $6.6 million grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation will support efforts to provide healthcare, comfort, protection and education to Liberia's children and families, as well as community awareness programs aimed at protecting health and preventing the spread of the virus.

The grant is part of Mr. Allen's commitment to funding at least $100 million in programs to tackle the Ebola crisis.   

"During my recent trip to Liberia, I saw firsthand the impact the deadly Ebola virus is having on children, families and communities," said Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of Save the Children.  "The daily increase in the number of orphans is particularly alarming. The support we receive from Mr. Allen will enable Save the Children to give more patients the immediate care they so desperately need, and can help to prevent the tragic loss so many families are experiencing."

Through the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation's generous support, Save the Children will be able to strengthen its health response through Ebola Community Care Centers, the first of which opens this week. Save the Children plans to construct, manage and operate nine additional community care centers smaller facilities in rural areas designed to isolate and treat Ebola patients within their towns and villages to ensure the hardest-hit communities in Liberia have access to quality community-level care. 

"In addition to addressing the immediate on the ground needs to tackle Ebola, we can't forget the long-term impact of this crisis," said Mr. Allen. "We must also focus on projects that will build infrastructure to provide ongoing support for the population. Children are the most vulnerable of this population, and the work Save the Children is doing will help provide for their care and education so they can have a future."
