The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the deadliest in history.
More than 4,800 people have died since March, and children are Ebola's most vulnerable victims. UNICEF estimates that 3,700 children have been orphaned by Ebola.
We can stop Ebola. UNICEF and its partners have reached more than 5.5 million people in West Africa—in Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone. UNICEF is airlifting essential supplies, distributing vital health information and caring for children and families. With early treatment, they can survive this disease.
