IMF preparing $150m in aid to three main Ebola-hit nations


The International Monetary Fund is preparing $150 million in additional support to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the countries at the heart of the Ebola epidemic, the Fund’s representative in Liberia told Reuters on Thursday.

“In Guinea and Sierra Leone, existing Fund financial programs are being augmented to provide more resources to these countries. In Liberia, a one-off disbursement under the Fund’s Rapid Credit Facility is being considered,” Charles Amo-Yartey told Reuters in an email.
