Samaritan’s Purse workers in Liberia showing ‘slight improvement’ in Ebola battle

The Christian International Relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse issued an update on two workers in the West African country of Liberia who have been battling Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) infections.



Dr. Kent Brantly, a doctor working for Samaritan’s Purse, and Nancy Writebol, a missionary with SIM, have shown a slight improvement in the past 24 hour. However, both remain in serious condition in Liberia where they are being treated for Ebola, the organization notes.

“We are doing everything possible to help Dr. Brantly and Nancy,” Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham said. “We ask everyone to please pray urgently for them and their families.”

“Their heroic and sacrificial service—along with the entire team there—is a shining example of Christ’s love in this crisis situation,” Graham said.

Samaritan’s Purse also announced today they will be curtailing operations in Liberia due to  instability and ongoing security issues in the area.

 Non-essential personnel are being evacuated but medical staff are remaining on site to treat patients.
