The Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) has provided 50 bags of rice and 12 cartons of assorted energy drinks including Lucozade and juices for Ebola patients admitted at ELWA Hospital.

The AEL also provided 20 gallons of Clorax to the Hospital's Management. The group said the donation is a way of encouraging the hospital to protect lives.

Presenting the items Wednesday, AEL General Secretary Rev. Isaac Wheigar said the donation is the organization's initial contribution to the sacrifices the hospital's management and staff is making to safe lives amidst the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

Rev. Wheigar indicated that the hospital have demonstrated a statement attributed to Jesus Christ in John Chapter 15 verse 13, which state "Greater love has no man then this, that a man should give his life to safe others."

He disclosed that the team headed by one Dr. Sacra constantly put their lives on the line to save the lives of others, noting that this is not only redemptive, but it is also Christ-like.

Rev. Wheigar lauded ELWA Hospital and health workers who are working to revive lives infected by the Ebola Virus.

He announced the establishment of the AEL's Ebola Fight Donations Pool, which according to him, will provide the opportunity to churches and individuals to donate food, medical and sanitation supplies for the war against Ebola.

Receiving the donation, ELWA Hospital Medical Director, Dr. Jerry Fahnloe Brown lauded AEL for the donation and assured that the items will be used for the intended purpose.
