Fighting the Ebola virus in Liberia - Artists for Trauma

Fighting the Ebola virus in Liberia

Artist for Trauma joins in the fight against the disfiguring, traumatizing life and death issues related to global, life altering water borne diseases and to participate with Waves for Water in their ongoing collaboration with Liberia’s Dr. Kimmie Weeks, and his Youth Action International mission.

AFT has teamed with Waves for Water in their support of Dr. Weeks and his first responders in the fight against the traumatizing effects of the Ebola virus in Liberia.

Dr. Weeks and Waves for Water’s immediate mission is to bring clean water hand-washing stations and non touch, digital thermometers to every school in Liberia in an effort to reduce the transference likelihood of Ebola through physical touch and cross contamination.

Artists for Trauma donated 30 digital, non touch, laser thermometers to provide and assist in the best practice, safe health screenings process to minimize the transference issues related to the spread of the Ebola Virus and other diseases.

The AFT donated thermometers helped to decrease the spread of Ebola by taking an individual’s temperature with a non touch laser that reads temperatures emitted from the body. With no physical contact required, doctors and nurses are able to screen a larger number of people at a faster rate without the increased worry of spreading the Ebola causing virus and other disease potentialities.

Waves for Water’s primary mission facilitated through various, strategic global partnerships, is to donate and integrate cost effective clean water filtering devices and well restoration projects through local hire to provide safe, clean drinking and usage water for humanity in diverse, water borne disease challenging conditions in global locations.

AFT took action through our strategic partnership with Waves for Water by recognizing, understanding and respecting the fact that we all live in this world together, we all have the responsibility and power to help, support, and improve each other’s lives through creative, integrative and effective collaboration.
