A Bottom-Up Approach to Containing the Ebola Crisis
We have been hearing a lot lately about the exodus of foreign aid workers treating Ebola patients in West Africa. The ramifications have been devastating for the local populations left behind. Aid for Africa member World Hope International uses a different approach. Almost all of its 100 aid workers in Sierra Leone are local, which means efforts to contain the disease continue despite the dangers. Learn more about how this bottom-up approach to development is making a difference.
