Ebola in the News

As you have probably heard, there is an Ebola virus outbreak in Northwestern Africa. Peace Corps Volunteers have been evacuated from Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. I will be praying for the people in that region and for those families affected by the outbreak.

Here in Malawi though, there are no cases of Ebola. Malawi is located in Southeastern Africa, which is very far from the outbreak.

If the virus did reach Malawi however, all trainees and volunteers would be immediately evacuated. Peace Corps is closely monitoring the situation and they send us updates. So don't worry, we trainees are okay down here in the warm heart of Africa.

The CDC has more information about the Ebola virus on their website:
