Mauritius is to contribute 100,000 dollars to the fight against the Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, which is ravaging parts of West Africa, the Government said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The money will be given to the WHO Africa Public Health Emergency Fund, the UN Trust Fund for Ebola”.

“The three UN member-countries worst affected by the disease – Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, will also be given.

A government official said though the island is not affected by EVD, it decided to assist fellow African nations in the fight against the disease that has so far claimed over 8,000 lives.
