Ebola Epidemic Forcing WFP To Operate Beyond Core Mission, Official Says

The Guardian: Scale of Ebola epidemic in Guinea forces WFP into uncharted territory
“…Elisabeth Faure, WFP’s Guinea director, said the scale of the [Ebola] epidemic was forcing the organization to operate far beyond its core emergency mission of getting $25m (£15.5m) of food to at least 353,000 people. As well as distributing the food, she said, the program was now being called on to help build Ebola treatment centers, move aid workers around the country, and provide emergency communications…” (Jones, 10/30).
