Africans in the Diaspora (AiD) co-founded Africa Responds to respond to the Ebola outbreak in parts of West Africa.

What Is It?

Africa Responds is a collaborative platform through which African organizations and allies pool their resources, networks, and collective voices to respond to the Ebola outbreak.  Learn more about Africa Responds.

What Are You Doing?

We raised over $100,000 to support grassroots organizations fighting Ebola. We are currently working with 10 grassroots organizations in Liberia and Sierra Leone. These organizations were at the forefront of the Ebola fight, providing support to people infected with Ebola, those affected by it, and survivors that are rebuilding their lives after the outbreak.
