Giving Opportunity: S.I.M. Ebola Outbreak Project

Nations suffering from Ebola outbreak (Source: Mashable.com)
One key way to stop the spread of Ebola in Africa and to help from our homes in the U.S. is to donate generously our financial resources to these developing nations. I posted a few days ago on how to donate through Samaritan's Purse, which has been on the ground in Liberia since the start of this current Ebola outbreak and has been overseeing one of the only operating Ebola wards in Liberia. Dr. Kent Brantly was the medical director of this operation and is now battling the virus himself.

Another partner organization on the ground in West Africa is SIM, a Christian missionary organization whose motto is "respond to need, proclaim the Gospel, equip the Church." Nancy Writebol, the second American to be infected by Ebola, has been working with SIM in Liberia as a missionary.

You can donate through SIM's website by visiting their Giving page and searching for project keyword, Ebola. This will bring up two current projects to give to: Ebola 2014 Missionary Assistance or Ebola Outbreak- West Africa.
