West African Musicians Team Up to Fight Ebola

Global stars Amadou and Mariam and Grammy winner Oumou Sangaré teamed up with regional musicians to record an Ebola awareness-raising song. It’s called “Africa Stop Ebola,” and it’s super awesome.

All proceeds from iTunes purchases of “Africa Stop Ebola” will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

Musicians aren’t the only people looking to reverse the traditional flow of aid from the West. Africa Responds, a grassroots response initiative led by four Africans, is also raising funds for Liberian organizations at the forefront of Ebola outreach and prevention.
