ECOL, like the rest of Liberia, was affected by the deadly Ebola epidemic which devastated the nation. No doubt Ebola is gone, but its effects will linger on for many, many years. ECOL lost 45 families to the deadly disease. There are currently 8 ECOL Ebola survivors and 8 Ebola orphans, plus more than a hundred other families who were also affected by the epidemic in one or more ways including loss of family bread winner, sponsorship in school due to death of sponsor, job, home, just a name of few. There is also the obvious psychological impact of such a catastrophe. In the midst of this tragedy we gathered the strength to mobilize for help for survivors, orphans, and the many others who are affected as the result of the epidemic. The ELWA Ministries Association (USA) assisted with a generous donation of $1000 which enabled us to immediately reach some of the affected people.
