Whistleblower Supports Ebola Charity

The playwrights of the Whistleblower production, ‘Echoes of Ebola’, will donate the revenue they receive for the rights to stage the play in New York City this June to Magazine Wharf Kids, a charity supporting some of the poorest Ebola survivors in Sierra Leone.

Many are now orphans who can no longer go to school. Instead they must work to get enough money to eat. The levels of child prostitution have soared since the virus struck.

A British army brigadier who led the British military Ebola relief effort in Sierra Leone set up the charity and funded it alone until others got on board.

The needs of the Ebola survivors, and those left alone as a result of the virus, are great but relatively cheap. Whistleblower is proud to support the Magazine Wharf Charity.
