Although the Ebola virus has only recently been a national concern – especially after the first confirmed case in the United States involved the patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, succumbing to the deadly disease on Wednesday, Oct. 8 – thousands continue to de in West Africa.

Beko Mantein, a pharmacist and member of Christ’s Harbor Church in Laguna Vista wants to help by donating items that will help combat the spread of Ebola in Liberia. Specifically, Mantein is hoping that the public can help by donating necessary medical items such as personal protective equipment for medical workers and basic medicines for patients.
