Ebola Booklet Goes to Liberia


News from Operation Blessing International:

Tomorrow the first of our Ebola prevention volunteer teams hit the streets in and
around Monrovia.  100 church volunteers split into three teams will be in three
separate districts / suburbs of the city going house to house distributing an
educational booklet and bars of soap. (This is the booklet and lesson masterminded
by Kim Kargbo at Women of Hope International and illustrated by JAMSBooks
artist, Seitu Hayden).

We’re printing an initial run of 8,000 units for the next few days.


Ebola Booklet Update

Our Ebola booklet has now done “the NGO equivalent of “going viral.” (No pun intended!!)” according to Kim with Women of Hope. It has literally been released to 100’s of agencies and missionaries throughout the region including:

Youth With a Mission
Foursquare Relief Ministries
World Orphans
Dakar Academy (a boarding school for missionary children throughout West Africa)
Christian and Missionary Alliance
Center for Disease Control

Summer Institute of Linguistics who works with translators throughout West Africa took the booklet and created a “shell” format, which basically put all the pictures and captions in a table format in Word, which allows any translation in any language to translate the booklet and put in captions in any local or tribal language anywhere.

Working as a team with the help of technology and creativity DOES make a difference.
