Here in the Northwest a group is working to help those at the highest risk of catching Ebola, people in West Africa.
Kimbery Sonko's husband grew up in Africa, the two started the organization 'Christ's hands on Afrika' to get necessary items to families in the country.
Sonko's husband still has family there who the couple sends supplies to, the family members then distribute the items to those in need.
The organization has been renting a storage unit, collecting what they know to be necessities for people living in Africa.
Backpacks, water bottles for the several mile walk to school and even bicycles for the luckier few.
But now they are looking for something new.
Their family in Africa say what they need most right now is sanitary supplies
With the threat of Ebola right at their doorsteps, children are being sent to school with bleach soaked rags to keep an germs from spreading.
Which is why the organization is now asking for hygiene items.
Sonko says if you are worries about Ebola spreading, donating is a way for you to make a difference.
