The Embassy of the Federative Republic of Brazil in Monrovia wishes to inform that the Brazilian Government, in response to the Ebola epidemic that has deeply impacted Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone since the beginning of the current year, has announced the donation of US$ 7,142,546.00 (seven million, one hundred and forty two thousand and five hundred and forty six American dollars) as Humanitarian Cooperation to the fight against the virus in these three countries.
The amount has already been transferred to New York and will be distributed, through the Brazilian Permanent Mission to the United Nations, to the following United Nations agencies/funds:
World Health Organization (WHO) – US$ 4,799,257.00;
World Food Program (WFP) – US$ 1,740,444.00; and
UN Ebola Trust Fund – US$ 602,845.00 .
Though what has been achieved so far in the fight against the Ebola epidemic is the result of joint efforts, the Brazilian Government wishes to congratulate all the Liberian and foreign health workers for their outstanding work in the line of duty, and to manifest its solidarity and long-standing friendship to the People and Government of the Republic of Liberia.
