    Kenya to donate $1 million to help fight Ebola in West Africa

    APA-Nairobi (Kenya)

    Kenya will donate 87 million shillings ($1million) to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia to help in the fight against Ebola, President Uhuru Kenyatta said on Tuesday, which he sai is in line with Kenya’s foreign policy on African solidarity.

    “Standing in solidarity with our African brothers and sisters during times of adversity is part of our foreign policy,” Kenyatta said in Nairobi. He assured Kenyans that border surveillance would continue to ensure that they are protected from Ebola. The President has previously stated that Kenya would not abandon West African countries hit by Ebola. The deadliest Ebola epidemic the world has ever seen is spreading across West Africa, with Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone the worst affected. The death toll has topped 2,000, out of nearly 4,000 people infected, according to the World Health Organization.
