Israel has made the world’s largest per-capita contribution to halt the spread of Ebola in West Africa, according to a statement by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in New York, Haaretz reports.

Part of Israel’s $8.75 million pledge was earmarked for UNICEF, which is working to tackle the drivers of Ebola transmission and provide urgent services for children affected by the disease.

In additional to the financial contribution, Israel has sent fully equipped medical clinics to West Africa, along with medical specialists to operate them and train local health workers.
