Ebola awareness & prevention campaign

In August 2014, during the Ebola crisis in Liberia, Mineke Foundation launched a major information campaign in Dabwe Town and 10 surrounding communities. It is estimated that 50 000 people live in these communities. Our goal was to prevent the spread of the disease in our working area. 

Our team recruited and trained campaign volunteers who received a small financial compensation for their help. Our entire team, including our campaign volunteers, also received weekly training and updates from other (international) organizations and experts.  

  • We provided door-to-door information about the symptoms of Ebola and the prevention of infection. We distributed thousands of flyers and posters. We mainly used pictures so that even those who could not read could understand. 
  • We organized free film evenings in 10 communities, including Dabwe Town. Each time, we showed an informational movie about how to prevent Ebola. 
  • We held in-depth workshops in communities about basic hygiene and Ebola prevention. 
  • We answered thousands of questions. 

Though our funds were limited, we were able to reach about 10 000 people. Liberia has been free of Ebola since the end of 2015.
