New Jersey native Katie Meyler has spent nine years in Monrovia working to improve the lives of children through her More Than Me charity. Since the Ebola outbreak, many of those kids are now orphans or outcasts, but the scourge has not stopped Meyler, 32, from trying to help.
Ebola has infected at least 13,000 people in West Africa, and killed at least 5,000. If the deadly virus isn't stopped, the CDC estimates that up to 1.4 million people could be infected by the end of January 2015. To help support the groups at the frontline of this disease, donate at Facebook.com/FightEbola.
