Social workers have always been at the forefront of helping others.
The Ebola Crisis has been described by the World Health Organization as the most “severe, acute, health emergency seen in modern times.”
Social workers are uniquely qualified to assist. Ebola not only strike the individual, it impacts the well-being of the family and the community. There are numerous levels of needs that only start with medical. Social workers fill this need.
When a disaster strikes, social workers may be personally affected and need help themselves. They lose their homes, their jobs, and their practices. Some may have lost loved ones.
