#FightEbola: Virus Leaves a Generation of Orphans

Virus Leaves a Generation of Orphans 2:00

Ebola has orphaned hundreds of children. Liberian siblings Promise, Emmanuel and Benson Cooper lost their mother in July and their father in August. An infant brother also died and a 13-year-old sister fell ill. The Cooper children say neighbors have shunned them.

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
