Cuban Good Samaritans - fighting Ebola in Africa

Cubans fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone
Ebola is a disease which causes internal bleeding. It is a hemorraghic fever disease. You vomit, have diarrhea and a rash and then your internal organs start to melt down. 

Ebola was first identified in Africa in 1976. Relatively few people have been killed by Ebola in the past 38 years. That is why the drug companies have not done research into this disease. There is no money in it. This disease only affected a relatively small number of Africans in the past 4 decades.

Recently, 4,033 people have died of Ebola out of a total of 8,399 registered cases in seven countries.

But now it may be going global. 

Cuba has sent hundreds of health workers to help control the deadly infection. Cuba

has a population of about 11 Million people. Cuba is not a rich country. But a brigade of 165 Cuban health workers arrived in Sierra Leone last week, the first batch of a total of 461.

Where are China, France, Italy, Spain, Britain and everyone else in sending medical supplies and medical staff to these stricken areas?

Do these countries only care when the disease is within their own country's borders? 

Pray for all of the victims of this disease.  They are young and well one day and in a week they are dead.

God bless the Cuban good Samaritans who have come to the aid of others. 

They are the true heroes of the modern era.

God save us from this disease.  Amen.
