Ebola Spreads to Ghana Bella Naija

An American doctor in Liberia who is part of a team helping to battle the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa, has himself been infected with the virus.

Kent Brantly is the doctor’s name, and he is a part of an aid agency called “Samaritan’s Purse,” which is also a Christian charity, Vanguard reports.

He is the medical director of the the agency’s Ebola case management center in Liberia, where they are working with both Liberian and international health officials to contain the outbreak. 

Brantly, who is married with two children, has reportedly been isolated at the agency’s Ebola treatment center at ELWA hospital in Monrovia, Liberia.

“Samaritan’s Purse is committed to doing everything possible to help Dr Brantly during this time of crisis. We ask everyone to please pray for him and his family,” said the group, in a statement.

    This is how we prove love, by making sacrifices to save the lives of others. This man knew the risks involved yet he chose to leave the comfort of his home in America to help others who could never repay him. Thank you Dr. Brantly for your sacrifice, we pray for healing upon you and trust God to bless you just as you have been a blessing to others.

    Dear friends, please know that giving to God is not only by giving money to the clergy. We can give to God by giving our time, skills, etc to support others, especially those who can’t repay us. Remember “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” – Jesus Christ speaking in Matthew 23:40
