Google has launched a public giving campaign to fight the deadly Ebola disease virus which is ravaging some West African countries.
Under the campaign, Google will donate $2 for every $1 given by the public to fight the Ebola scourge, the search giant has said.
Google, in addition, is donating $10 million to support nonprofit organisations such as InSTEDD, International Rescue Committee, Medecins Sans Frontieres, NetHope, Partners in Health, Save the Children and U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
Larry Page, Google CEO, says his family foundation will separately donate another $15 million. According to him, “separately, our family foundation will also be giving $15 million. Our hearts go out to everyone whose lives have been touched by this tragedy,” he said.
