Facebook has joined forces with the International Medical Corps, American Red Cross and Save the Children to raise support and help those who need it the most. As a board member of the American Red Cross Silicon Valley, I can say that over 90 cent per dollar donated to our organization directly goes to those in need. Some points to consider:
- Save the Children said there are 10 million children at risk in the Ebola affected areas, 2.5 million of them under age five.
- Children are the most vulnerable victims – already more than 3,700 have been orphaned, and many have been shunned by their communities.
