Coconut Oil for Ebola Victims in Liberia Africa
Helping Traditions helped a Liberian ministry start a native coconut oil distribution program to families in Liberia who have been affected by the Ebola crisis in late 2014. Coconut palm trees are native to the coastal areas of Liberia, so Mission Bethel Ministries was able to visit coconut producing areas in Liberia in 2014 and make contact with small-scale coconut oil producers to supply traditional coconut oil. Research has shown that the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil are powerful germ fighters, particularly against viruses where pharmaceutical products typically fail. While there is no research yet showing that coconut oil is effective against the Ebola virus, coconut oil is a powerful immune builder with no side effects. Since coconuts and coconut oil are native to Liberia, it made sense to invest in a coconut oil distribution program in Ebola affected areas. Learn how you can help support this project!
