Africare In the News

Join Africare, Pape Diouf and Other Senegalese Artists to Stop Ebola in its Tracks!

Date: 14 Novembre 2014
Location: Grand Theatre, Dakar Senegal

The Ebola virus is killing thousands and destabilizing Senegal’s neighbors in West Africa. While Senegal has fortunately managed to avoid the outbreak, we must remain alert to stay safe, and we must do more to support our brothers and sisters in the region.

On November 14, 2014, Africare/Senegal will host the Stop Ebola Benefit concert, one of the first major Ebola-focused events on the continent, to raise awareness of the West African outbreak and to raise funds to conduct community surveillance and sensitization in Senegal and Guinea.

Awareness and fundraising activities will continue with a walk event on November 16.

For more information on the event and Africare/Senegal’s planned Ebola programming in the region, please contact Africare/Senegal Country Director Gwen Young at gyoung@africare.org or +221 33 869 7401.
