Nothing demonstrates more clearly how interconnected we all are than the current Ebola crisis that is devastating several countries in West Africa and has the potential to spread around the world. You can help by donating money to one or more of the following charities that are helping combat Ebola, through the Connecticut State Employees’ Charitable Campaign (CSEC):
Global Impact (8200) and its charity partners Africare (8203), AmeriCares (8207), ChildFund International (8211), Doctors Without Borders (8213), Episcopal Relief and Development (8257), International Medical Corps (8265), International Rescue Committee (8219), Lutheran World Relief (8220), UNICEF (8230).
You can find these and other charities listed in the CSEC directory online. To find a specific charity of your choice in the online directory, open the pdf, hit the ctrl key and ‘F’ on your keyboard, type the charity you are searching for in the search box, click the down arrow next to your search, and select “Find or Open.”
