Facebook donates $25 million to fight Ebola

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will donate $25 million to combat the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus.

The money will go to the CDC Foundation, the charitable organization that raises and distributes funds on behalf the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to public health organizations.

“We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn’t spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio,” he said on a posting on Facebook.
“We believe our grant is the quickest way to empower the CDC and the experts in this field to prevent this outcome.”
