Good guy Samsung: Sends 3000 smartphones to Africa to help fight Ebola
The Ebola virus is a threat to human race. If it has not yet affected you, it has infected over 9200 people in West Africa where the virus has killed 4500 people and counting.
Now, Samsung wants to see an end to this raging epidemic. In part of it’s plans to help curb this disease, the Korean phone maker has sent loads of smartphones down to health workers in the affected regions to help the fight against Ebola.
The 3,000 Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo smartphones will be distributed among health workers in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone via the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Human Affairs (OCHA).
Last week, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his family donated $25 million for the fight to contain Ebola. That same week, Nigeria, a country that had dozens of Ebola cases some months ago, was declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organization.
