short link:

There is presently no cure or vaccine for Ebola. Awareness, education, and fundraising for prevention are absolutely critical. Music can help to spread urgent information fast [1][2][3]

A Liberian hit song, "Ebola in Town" (click here for details), produced by m4ghd partner Shadow (Samuel Morgan) and colleagues in Liberia, has been widely disseminated widely by global media and news outlets.

We seek to:

  • Help the Liberian artists who created Ebola in Town, and others who have produced similar awareness-raising music, to further disseminate their musical messages around the world, for Ebola awareness, education, and health professional training.
  • Produce a Canadian remix of "Ebola in Town", broadening its audience and raising money for Ebola prevention and research.
  • Develop musical soundtracks supporting online Ebola training programs now under development at the University of Alberta and elsewhere
