Ebola Relief Fund

Friends of Guinea (FOG) is pleased to announce its collaboration with the National Peace Corps Association, Friends of Liberia, and Friends of Sierra Leone on the Ebola Relief Fund.   Launched by the National Peace Corps Association and directed by PCVs and RPCVs who know and love the affected countries, the Ebola Relief Fund will give financial assistance to organizations providing help and relief during this painful time.

FOG Members and current Guinea PCVs Sara Laskowski and Ryan Plesh are representing FOG on the steering committee and working now to identify groups in Guinea to receive these funds.  Organizations will be required to meet certain funding requirements and complete a brief application. If you can recommend an organization to receive funding, please contact Sara Laskowski, saralaskowski@gmail.com or Ryan Plesh, rsplesh@gmail.com

Whether you are a FOG member or solely a concerned world citizen, please consider making a donation to the Ebola Relief Fund: http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/2014/09/npca-establishes-ebola-relief-fund/
