Liberia, Dolo Town, 9-10 September 2014
WFP is scaling up its response to the Ebola virus to provide assistance to around one million people affected by the outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, delivering food alongside the health response. WFP is also assisting the wider humanitarian community with logistics, helping other organisations to get aid workers and critical supplies into the affected areas.
The Ebola virus in Western Africa is threatening not only lives, but also food production. If we fail to act now, entire communities could miss the harvest season.
WFP has never faced so many emergencies at once.
