18. Doctors without Borders have saved 1,000 people so far

 

If anyone needs any coaxing to donate, here's an excerpt of what they do.

But the group has pushed forward and announced this week that it had saved its 1,000th patient since March.

Kollie James, a teenage Liberian boy who lost his mother, two sisters and uncle to the disease, is now Ebola-free.

"Stop crying Papa, I will not die," Kollie told his despondent father from across the treatment centerís fence in Foya, Liberia, after he was diagnosed. "My sisters are gone, but I am going to survive and I will make you proud."
