Bishops’ Appeal acts on Ebola

Monday October 27th 2014

Bishops' Appeal smDuring the early days of the outbreak of Ebola, Bishops’ Appeal released €5,000 to support the efforts of the Leprosy Mission and local partners in Liberia and Guinea to provide protective equipment for hospital staff responding to the virus.

In a recent statement, the Church of Ireland Bishop’s Appeal said that, to date, an alarming percentage of the victims have been health workers.  A protective suit costs £4/€5.

Bishops’ Appeal is now acting as a conduit for funds that will be directed to safeguarding frontline health workers in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone through the provision of protective equipment.

Individuals, parishes and dioceses are invited to respond by sending donations to Bishops’ Appeal, Church of Ireland House, Rathmines, Dublin 6.
