Inditex donates 1 million euro to help contain Ebola

Spanish Inditex, Zara's parent company, has donated 1 million euro to a Doctors Without Borders emergency fund to help contain Ebola. The money will be used immediately to fight off the virus in West Africa, where most of the victims are located.

Shortage of beds

 Doctors Without Borders has sent 3,200 people over there to take care of nearly 5,000 patients, but says there is a poignant shortage of beds.

 

Inditex has not only committed to donating 1 million euro to help contain Ebola, it will also donate another 2.1 million euro to 4 existing humanitarian Doctors Without Borders projects. Two examples are Syrian refugees and the fight against malnutrition with Indian children.
