Donating Cash To Organizations Responding To Ebola Best Way To Help

Washington Post: Giving cash is the best way to combat Ebola
Juanita Rilling, director of the USAID Center for International Disaster Information

“Much has been reported on the Ebola outbreak, but little information has been provided on how the public can contribute to the relief effort. … The most effective way for the public to help is by giving money to reputable organizations working directly with disaster-affected people. Donating cash rather than unrequested material items enables relief organizations to respond quickly to changing needs. American donors have demonstrated that even small cash donations combine to bring great relief. American compassion will save lives in West Africa, too” (9/18).
