ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The St. Louis-based Lutheran Church Missouri Synod [LCMS] directs thousands of dollars in aid to fight Ebola in western Africa.
More than $50,000 in aid has been distributed to church partners in Liberia and Guinea.
Two previous Ebola grants – totaling more than $16,000 – were distributed to Missouri Synod partners in Sierra Leone and Guinea earlier this year.
All the LCMS funds will be used to help prevent new cases of the often-fatal virus that has killed more than 1,000 people – over half of the more than 1,800 people infected so far.
