With the re-emergence of Ebola in Democratic Republic of Congo in May, 2018, we decided to reactivate our findraising efforts in support of Doctors Without Borders. We hope that people will give generously to help these first responders contain this new-born epidemic.
MONGERING AND PUBLIC IDIOCY
In the week ending on October 24, 2014 panic over the Ebola virus here at home (not in West Africa, home of the illness) dominated headlines and cable news. WNYC's "On the Media" put together a template to help the discerning news consumer see through the media's over-the-top coverage.
The organizational meeting of HALT EBOLA was held at The Drilling Company Theater, 236 West 78th Street, NYC on Sunday, September 28, 2014 attended by Jonathan Slaff, Heather Woodfield, John McGarvey and Ben Weintraub. What you see in this website is the product of that meeting.
We intend to persevere with fundraising for existing charities while developing other initiatives to combat the epidemic. A multi-level approach is being developed.
If you are interested in volunteering , please email Jonathan Slaff or contact any member of our steering committee, who are listed on the contact page. Everyone is welcome and we are eager for your input!
