Liberian communities in the US battle Ebola on both sides of the Atlantic
By Ralph H. & Elizabeth Tubman - Zoebush Reporters
In the wake of the first Ebola case reported in Dallas Texas, United States, Liberians in the DFW Metroplex woke up Tuesday morning now forced to deal with the Ebola virus on two fronts. Since early May of 2014, the focus and concerns of all Liberians living in the states have been on how to help their families, fellow Liberians and their country
fight the Ebola virus which has killed more than 3,000 people in west Africa with the most hit country being Liberia where over half of the deaths have occurred.
Liberians across the United States and the world have been focusing on one thing and one thing only, how to help their people and families. Every day, since the outbreak, Liberians have been getting news about the death of their fellow citizens, friends, families and loves ones. There has been a kind of silent panic within every family because no one knows when the next call was going to come, telling them that their love one is seriously sick with no medical help available or the sad news of death. Liberians in the diaspora has been dealing with this situation and at the same time have been following development in the country as it plays out on the media about the virus. Liberians have followed the news every day with the hope and expectation that the virus would be contained. It was very encouraging to see the international community with the United States taking the lead come in to help the people of Liberia and the other West African countries that are also experiencing the Ebola outbreak.
In July 2014, the Ebola made local and international/world news and Liberia was placed on the map as the epic center of the Ebola outbreak when Dr. Brantly and Mrs. Writebol both U. S. citizens got infected with the Ebola virus. Thanks to the mobilization of the United States and NGOs working in Liberia, both Dr. Brantly and Mrs. Writebol were flown to the States for medical treatment. Fortunately, both were healed from the virus and more attention was placed on doing everything to stop the spread of the virus in West Africa.
The Liberian community Association of DFW Metroplex has been actively engaged in finding support and help for the people of Liberia. While many Liberians in the DFW area are personally sending money and items home to help family members, they are also working collectively as a community to help stop the virus. The community held fundraiser, have collected PPEs and other medical supplies and equipment at the same time praying and fasting for God’s intervention. Prayers services were held both in August and September in the Liberian churches. The community has been on the phone calling family members advising them to follow the CDC guidelines on how to stop the spread of the virus.
So with the Tuesday morning news that a Liberian has been hospitalized in Dallas with the first case of Ebola in the United States, the first reaction from many of the community members was one of shock. The leadership team of Mr. Stanley Gaye, President of the Liberian community Association of DFW held an emergency meeting to address the situation and provide information......Full Story
Hundreds of Liberians and friends of Bishop & Mrs. Bennie D. Warner and family gathered in Oklahoma City at Quayle United Methodist Church to Pay their last respect and say their last farewell during the wake and funeral services for their daughter the late Kaymah Warner.
Many people came from across the United States and Liberia to sympathize with the family for the untimely and sudden death of their daughter. Kaymah H. Warner passed away after a brief illness in Oklahoma City, OK on Wednesday, August 13, 2014.

Both the Wake and the Funeral were a celebration of her life. In his remarks, Bishop Warner said the family is okay and fine because they have deposited in God over the years and this was the time that they were now withdrawing from their account. They have enough deposited to draw strength and comfort from. So he assured all that the family was okay and God will see them though. He thanked everyone for their show of love and sympathy to the family.
