Efforts to Fight Ebola

Firestone Natural Rubber Company is on the front lines of Ebola. In addition to treating Ebola patients at the Firestone Medical Center at Duside, we have made significant donations to help combat this deadly disease.

The Bridgestone Group has donated $1,000,000 to help combat Ebola. $500,000 was donated to Samaritan’s Purse by Bridgestone Americas, Inc. for work in Liberia, while Bridgestone Corporation donated $500,000 to support UNICEF’s efforts in Liberia and Nigeria.

The funds are aimed at strengthening efforts to stop the spread of Ebola through public awareness; helping facilitate delivery of in-home care supplies for the sick; enhancing medical treatment; and providing support for children left orphaned due to the epidemic.
