Estonian government gives money to for Ebola Relief

The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has provided 50,000 euros to help the World Health Organization prevent the deadly viral illness from spreading in West Africa.

The current epidemic is centered on Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. The WHO is aiming to develop a monitoring and warning system, follow up on all new suspected cases, and reduce hospital infections. It is also administering training in the public sectors of West African countries. Lab technology will also be supported.
