Ebola Virus Outbreak – The Catastrophic Story of West Africa
Death Tolls To 4600 As Ebola Outbreaks in West Africa.


Ebola Virus – The Horrifying History

Ebola is a series of life-threatening diseases which transmits from one human to another making it easier to infect the living beings around the globe. It includes a special type of fever which is known as the ‘Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever’. The Ebola produces a severe reaction inside the human body causing immense amount of pain and shivering in organs. The outbreak of this fatal disease is highlighted in the patient within 24 hours evoking a channel of disturbance such as sore throat, extreme muscle pain and unbearable headache.

The Ebola Virus Disease made its first appearance through a simultaneous outbreak in the year of 1976 which marks its official presence on the chart of some of the most horrifying syndromes that humanity has suffered in the world. The countries such as Sudan and Congo were reportedly confirmed to be infected with this overwhelming virus that affects the main organs of the body including liver and kidneys. After its transmission to the rural areas and suburbs, this life-wrenching disease was named over a river called the ‘Ebola River’.

West Africa – Ebola Outbreak Sent Ripples of Sadness:

The heart-pounding Ebola virus has triggered in the Western African countries causing as many as 4,960 deaths in 2014. The figures have all the intentions to increase as this alarming situation is prevailing from one portion of the continent to another especially in the rural areas where patients are deprived of any medical services or health reservations.

World Health Organization states that, “It is the worst Ebola outbreak in the decades when more than 4500 people have already died and the list of causalities is not stopping at all. It seems that the Western-African countries are getting overwhelmed with this devastating virus disease especially in Guinea which has contributed the most to the death toll”.

In Liberia, according to an online source from ‘Wikipedia’, the outburst of EVD (Ebola Virus Disease) was reported in the counties of Lofa and Nimba. The government decided to halt the border areas and every gateway that allowed the people to enter the region. Wikipedia claims that more than 90% of the schools and universities remained closed except for the airport. The frightened citizens remained cautious from therein and screening centers were established for maximum filtration of this fatal disease.

Analysis By Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Affected Countries: 10 (Ten)
Widespread Transmission: Liberia, Guinea and Sierra.
Local Transmission: United States of America, Spain and Mali.
Total Number of Cases: 13,567.
Total Number of Deaths : 4960

“Prevention is Better Than Cure” – Creating Awareness About Ebola Virus

The Ebola is preventable as well as curable if treated with the right medicine and in timely manner. To stop this life-threatening virus which is spreading day by day to various regions of the world, we must practice the community engagement for better outbreak control.

Furthermore, it is essential to create mass awareness regarding the Ebola Virus Disease by any medium including advertisements and online campaigns to enlighten all individuals about its hap-hazard.

Make Donations for Western African Countries:

This frightening phase of time in West-Africa was not chosen on intentional basis. It means that everyone in the world is liable to become an Ebola Virus victim however by working proactively for this serious issue; we can bring a change in results.
Donate for laboratory and health services here, become a part of an Ebola free planet.

Green Living

Green 1
“Green”, as we understand it, is a different way of thinking about our planet. Primarily, “green living” means a kind of life that enhances the maintenance of ecological balance that is natural in the surrounding and protecting the planet and its natural resources and systems.

The world we live in has billions of inhabitants. The decision to begin living green is vital and important to each person’s health. The goal is to have a healthier, meaningful, and sustainable life. Additionally, this healthy way of living can be taught and passed on to future generations. After all, the future depends on us. And the choices we make now could have a huge impact for many years to come.

The type of air we breathe affects our health. About 2 million people around the world die annually due to air pollution; this is as stated by the World Health Organization. The air pollutants are reported to have lead, which is linked with learning deficits and behavioral issues.

A perfect world would be one where we choose to “go green” with the understanding that we have one life to live, we care about our natural resources, and we care about pollution.

When we talk about ‘saving the environment’ or ‘saving the planet’, we are really talking about saving ourselves! We all need:
• Clean air
• Healthy and safe food to eat
• Clean water
• Clean energy
• Healthy and safe places to live

How can you get started? You can go green by:
• Helping in the conservation of wildlife and forest
• Minimizing pollution
• Planting more trees and plants in lands that are vacant
• Protecting natural resources
• Providing assistance in the maintenance of the ecological balance on the planet so that the entire universe can live and thrive in their natural home
• Recycling non-biodegradable products
• Supporting green projects wherever you are, e.g. volunteering, spreading the green news, etc.

We Can bridge the Poverty Gap!

SAM_0961
There are many ways to bridge the poverty gap. Providing food to those who are poor is one of the tactical approaches. Hunger can result in malnutrition, sickness, and death. How do we solve this problem? We could start by encouraging the food chains to lessen their waste and feed the hungry.

As UNICEF reported, 22,000 children die every day as a result of poverty. And they perish silently in parts of the poorest villages in the world, far taken away from the conscience and survey of the globe.

Poverty Statistics & Water Problems
• A number of world surveys show that 1.1 billion people in countries that are developing have insufficient access to water.
• 1.8 million Child deaths are reported every year as an outcome of diarrhea
• There are 440 million school days lost every year worldwide from water-related conditions.
The number of children in the entire world is estimated to 2.2 billion. Among them, 1 billion come from poor families. Among the 1.9 billion children from developing countries, there are:

• 400 million who cannot access safe water
• 640 million with insufficient shelter
• 270 million who cannot access health services

Many nonprofit organizations have come up with ways that people could help. This is what they say and we support this statement too:
Educate yourself – If you educate yourself you will work out where your energy and time is perfectly used in assisting the poor gain the power and the skills they require in order to assist themselves.

Make A Donation –It is extremely vital when you donate to your local and world organizations. A number of these organizations depend on donations to move on and provide service to the community.

Volunteer – There are a large number of ways to lend a hand in your community through action that is direct.

• Assist in creating a dialogue about poverty

Initiate or be a member of an organization – Assemble people who are like-minded and choose something to do with poverty and work on it.

At JB Dondolo, Inc., we are committed to offering charitable services to the impoverished communities. We focus on communities that cannot afford the simple, basic necessities. We believe that sustainable solutions can greatly improve human lives.

Imagine this…Water is Simply a Dream for Some

1
For us to live, we need water, the number one vital thing among the basic requirements on Earth. The fact is, you can only survive a few days without water. Drinking the required amount of water helps in purifying your body of unwanted toxic substances and regulating your body temperature. Also, water transports oxygen to your cells. The truth is that drinking plenty of water is healthy as far as human life is concerned.

In industrialized countries like America, it is very common to see people drinking water from bottled water. And water has become the second most known drink after soft drinks.

While we might not require eight glasses of water per day, there are a number of reasons as to why we should drink water. “Water is like a nutrient that your body requires that is found in plain water, liquids, and foods. Every one of them is vital on a daily basis to supersede the huge quantities of water lost everyday,” says Koelemay Joan, RD, the Beverage Institute dietitian, an industry team.

Steven Guest, Kaiser Permanente nephrologists’, MD, agrees to the point: “The loss of fluids takes place continuously, from breathing, skin evaporation, stool, and urine, and these losses should be replaced everyday for good health,” he utters.
Your body is made of about 80% water. When water output does not match your intake, dehydration can take place. It does not matter the season we are in, dehydration is very dangerous. Just a loss of 1 to 2 percent of the total percentage of water in the human body can result in dehydration.

Water problems
The basic needs for the poor are a human and moral-rights obligation. An elderly woman, with four children from a poor Igusi community in Zimbabwe, spends more than five hours daily walking a long distance to fetch only 20 liters of water. She looks forward with anticipation and joy to that moment when her region will have a clean water solution that is sustainable. Perhaps, a borehole nearby with some sort of filtration system would make a difference in her life. Or other green solutions that make sense for a small community. She could then spend more time farming and doing her household chores. After all, such programs would help sustain any solutions brought to her region by you and me. You can help! There are many ways you could help. Visit us at http://www.jbdondolo.org.

Your Voice Has the Power. Raise It for the Cause!

According to UNICEF, lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every four hours. WOW! Every 4 hours? That number is stunningly high. Interesting enough, UNDP says a single person in American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), nearly all deaths (99 percent) occur in the developing world. The numbers don’t lie. The rate of poverty will continue to rise if we neglect the facts. The truth is, we can do something about it.

Fighting Poverty: 1 in 10 People Lack Access to Safe Water

Water_Needed_1

It’s hard to imagine that nearly 800 million people lack access to water. 1 in 10 people lack access to safe water. The United Nations reported that more people die from water and sanitation-related diseases than from all forms of violence, including war. How can we help?

We are working on a project to provide clean water for an impoverished community in Africa. With your help, we can accomplish our mission. We hope to install a safe, cleaner, sustainable water solution. The water solution is part of the bigger project – The Hospital Hope project. We understand that by providing clean water, we would help reduce mysterious, unforeseen illnesses.

As the summer season approaches, more people would be dehydrated and without water. You can help.

Here are some ways you can help or become involved:
1. You could help connect us with companies / suppliers of solar energy water systems or other similar sustainable water solutions.
2. Donate the materials needed for the sustainable water solution.
3. You could contribute by making a donation. Go to http://www.jbdondolo.org/#!donate/c6i1
4. Sign up for our free e-Newsletter and keep up with what’s going on in our company and learn ways to become a volunteer. Go to http://www.jbdondolo.org/#!newsletter/cj5j
5. Share our link with your social media fans.

Recently, we had the opportunity to share our project at the pre-Oscars event in Beverly Hills, CA. This event was special in getting the word out. See the pictures here.

Spreading the word to your community is one way you could help us get the project known and therefore, get us closer to our mission to provide the basic necessities to the needy. Your actions will help create a powerful movement to help fight poverty and restore hope.

Help us help Igusi community. We are only a step away from achieving our goal. We know that we can’t do it alone; it takes a village to make an impact! Together, we can provide a sustainable water solution, quench the thirsty and provide hope for a
better, healthier life.
