Volunteering in West Africa

The Ebola virus is making more and more victims everyday. It started spreading more now than ever. IT is a virus that started in Africa and still makes more victims there than ever. It is easy to get contaminated with this type of virus in a country where is a very weak health system. This virus is so powerful, it caused a big number of deaths.

The lack of specialised human and instructional resource also contribute to the spreading of Ebola in West Africa.
Fortunately, more and more people started to realise how important education can be in helping this people to deal with this virus. They understand the need for educated people to be in Africa so they volunteer going there. The volunteers who goes to Africa, make an important change in this country. They try to educate the people from Africa by creating a hygienic environment and by making them understand how the Ebola can spread. It is important for the people from Africa to understand how this virus works and how can be avoided.

The people who volunteers going to these countries are so different. You have doctors going there, nurses, accountants and all sort of people. It was even an article about an ex Earls Court Escorts who used to work in London, who left that life and started to do volunteer work. This girl, the former escort, was working so hard, day and night, without feeling tired or ever complain. She was there for helping people, thing that she did.
So, imagine a variety of people…all with a purpose…to save other lives. In the end it does not matter what you used to be as long you want and can help another.

Volunteering is something that everyone should experience in their lifetime. You get a great feeling when you are helping another human, And especially when is a human who didn’t have a chance of having a normal life as we are used to. Most people from this third world countries have a harsh life since they are young. They are put to work and sometimes have no food to eat in one day. It is hard to imagine but it happens.

So, if you have a chance and want to help someone, go and volunteer. Not necessarily in West Africa, but anywhere where you can. It’s a way to give back for all that you have.
