WFP Uses its Logistics Expertise to Build Ebola Treatment Units (For the Media)

Speed is of the essence right now, and the entire humanitarian community is working around the clock to get on top of this crisis. WFP is using its logistics expertise to build Ebola Treatment Units, to transport huge amounts of cargo into the affected countries and then, once it’s here, making sure its stored, managed properly so it can be sent out to remote areas where is really needed.
The spread of Ebola is disrupting food trade and markets not just in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia but also the surrounding region. Many families have already seen their livelihoods affected. WFP is working to make sure that this health crisis does not become a food and nutrition crisis as well.
