The society has an outreach program and has a unique method of alleviating suffering in the world. They believe through channeling positive prayer energy and storing it in batteries, they can then release it around the world when critically needed.
For the most part, the international staff at the Red Cross treatment centre have years of experience behind them. But even so, you cannot neglect the psychological impact of dealing with death on a daily basis.
Nobody can yet comprehend the legacy that the current Ebola outbreak will leave. But that should galvanise us into action - it shows why 2015 must be the year to strengthen health systems and support innovative solutions that secure healthier lives and livelihoods.
Sadly, this is a cultural issue, not a medical one. Women's inferior status is brutally manifested in visibly higher infection rates, and analysts warn the knock-on effects of this deadly virus will also hit female family members hardest.
As such my only New Year's resolution is try to be nicer to people; a task that if undertaken by everyone all at once, might make this tumultuous lump of rock hurtling around an infinite, pointless expanse of space that we call home somewhat more bearable.
Ebola poses a genuine threat to all of us - and it is about time we realised this.
For every one doctor and three nurses working at an Ebola treatment unit there are approximately 26 water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) staff... The next time you read an interview with an international doctor or nurse newly returned from their deployment and recounting desperately sad, and now too familiar, stories about the struggle and the suffering please give some thought to the many WASH staff who remain.
Would it shock Mr. Morgan to learn that one of my previous branch committee managed an Oxfam shop for many years? I could give many more examples - could it be that perhaps we're not the 'little Englanders' after all, the people that we're smeared as being?
Your first thoughts on Katie Hopkins could be that she's a poisonous attention-seeker. On greater depth you can see that Hopkins raises some valid points and thoughts but phrases them in the most insensitive and hurtful ways. Is this the only way to get listeners to pay attention?..
Mr Farage says he represents the ordinary person in the street and yet he has very little in common with the those he claims to represent - being educated at public school and as an ex City financier and someone who has since been paid vast amounts of money by the EU - the very organisation he claims to hate so much.
According to Unicef 2014 has been the worst year for millions of children across the world. With growing conflicts arising across the globe innocent children have been forcibly exposed to violence, kidnapped or targeted and forced in to warring groups.
The body is put in an MSF vehicle and taken to the morgue. There can be no traditional burial rites, which involve washing and touching the body because of the risk of infection. This makes an already heart-breaking situation even worse for the family. They will never see the baby again...
It's Christmas time. There's no need to be afraid, or so the Band Aid lyrics start. Sadly, in today's world they express more an aspirational desire than an actual reality. Syria, South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Ebola outbreak give plenty of reason for fear.
I came across the story of a Sierra Leonean 8 year old boy whose father had died, most likely from Ebola, who called the national hotline in early November, and presumably is now the head of the household, overseeing five younger siblings.
David Cameron has undermined progress towards UHC by supporting private health provision in developing countries. Take India, for example, where the UK Government subsidised a private diabetes hospital which only caters for the better off. This is why Labour will demand that Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is put at the heart of the global development agenda
The Ebola crisis in West Africa has shown what happens when local health systems lack the resilience to respond to shocks. Acute shortages of health workers, poor infrastructure, and lack of trust in health systems have allowed the epidemic to spread rapidly and cost many lives.
