Quotes

"Refresher training was also conducted with Fiji Red Cross branch volunteers throughout Fiji on disaster pre-position container stock management, initial damage assessment, branch situation report, emergency operation centre set-up and the use of emergency communication equipment."
"There are people who are able to react quickly by generating antibodies, but it does not depend only on age or the presence of other illnesses, such as malaria. I've seen patients with HIV who have survived and healthy young people who have died within six hours" said Encinas
"There has been a number of initiatives and a number of trainings in various countries conducted together by the ICRC and the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. For example, we have devised a Safe Access Framework for volunteers who have to drive ambulances to the front lines of conflict to pick up the wounded. They need to know how to behave in order to reduce the risk of exposure."
"I know that many Ontarians are concerned about the rapid spread of the Ebola virus. These funds will help those on the front lines in West Africa in their courageous efforts to treat patients and prevent further transmissions of this deadly disease. The people of Ontario are compassionate and caring and I know they will contribute to this important effort."
