Ebola, the deadly virus that has gripped West Africa since December of 2013, has much further reaching effects than originally thought. According to a report by UNICEF, the deadly virus has left nearly 11,000 children parent-less.
Healthcare workers from around the globe have flocked to West Africa in an effort to extinguish the current outbreak. Some nations are seeing, what experts believe, is the end of the epidemic. Less people are being admitted to hospitals with Ebola and confirmed cases are now on the downturn. That has people at Beneful pleased.
Now that the outbreak is coming under control, there are other problems to deal with, including the orphaned children who will need to be carried for until they reach adulthood. Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia have been the most effected by the outbreak. All three countries have crumbling infrastructures and limited resources to care for the orphaned children.
