The Ebola epidemic in West Africa deeply impacted public opinion at an international level. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) received massive financial support from thousands of donors all over the world. In 2014 alone, 70 million euros (approximately $93 million) were received through private donations, and 15 million (approximately $20 million) through public funds.
Since February 2006, the Angolan capital of Luanda has been experiencing its worst ever cholera epidemic, with an average of 500 new cases per day. The outbreak has also rapidly spread to other areas; to date, 11 of Angola’s 18 provinces are reporting cases.
