Rome, 11/09/2014

According to the latest figures the virus has killed 1,900 people in west Africa

The Sovereign Order of Malta’s Ebola kit containing medicines and healthcare products arrived in Monrovia, Liberia on 2 September last. The kit mainly consists of supplies for the protection and hygiene of the local population and medical personnel in hospitals and healthcare products for patients, including tests and medicines, water purification tablets, disinfectants, soap, surgical gauze and thermometers.
This consignment is financed by the Global Fund for Forgotten People (the Order of Malta’s special agency which raises funds for its humanitarian projects) and implemented by the Ordre de Malte France. The relative agreements were made during a meeting held in Rome at the end of July between the two Liberian ambassadors to Italy and to the Sovereign Order of Malta and the Grand Hospitaller Dominique de la Rochefoucauld-Montbel.
