Ebola calls for Donation
Our Christian Endeavor friends in Sierra Leone and Liberia have to face again (after last year’s cholera) a life threatening epidemic, Ebola. Pastor Wuo Gahn, who leads ‘Endeavor Liberia’ wrote to WCEU trustee Tim Eldred: "We ask our friends to intercede for us as we fast and pray for God's intervention. The Ebola Outbreak is such that we have been asked by the government to stay home and try to get enough food to keep us home for an indefinite time. We do not know what the masses will do to survive." Endeavor (CEI) in the US collects funds to help provide chlorine, chloride, and dentol to Liberian families. The president of the Liberian Christian Endeavor Union, Rev. Enoch Wiah, wrote: “We are deadly in tears to inform you about the present condition we are facing here in Liberia, which is troublesome, that is the deadly Ebola Virus that took away more than five hundred lives and part of our country have been barricaded by our government. Hence, we are calling upon you for a help to enable us help our members and the nation in general. We are also told by the Ministry of Health that we should protect ourselves by washing our hands with chlorine, soap and clean water through buckets. This Ebola war brought hardship on our people and nation. Presently, a bag of rice costs US$40.00 while a gallon of chlorine is US$50.00 etc. We are very much hopeful that you will do all that is required to provide some needed assistance such as cash, food, buckets, chlorine etc. Presently, Liberia CE does not have bank account. Therefore, if you have any cash to send us please pay it to Rev. Enoch Wiah Belloh account (A/C) 0521105111001 First International Bank (Liberia) Ltd.”
You can send money for the Liberian endeavorers to the WCEU account in Germany (IBAN: DE94 5206 0410 0000 8038 98 – BIC: GENODEF1EK1) or send a check to the American WCEU office (P.O. Box 723, GROVE CITY, PA 16127-0723 U.S.A).
