Aid for Ebola victims, education and health: The Gates Foundation donates billions each year for development aid. The global vaccination alliance is currently meeting in Berlin – at the invitation of Chancellor Merkel. Again, support from Bill Gates is needed. His foundation wants to contribute a large part of the approximately 7.5 billion dollars for the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (Gavi).

September 2014: The Ebola epidemic in West Africa kills hundreds of people every day. But what is most needed is still missing in the fight against the disease. Anja Wolz, MSF emergency coordinator, said at the time that they warned months ago that international aid had started way too late: "Normally we always try to be one step faster than the virus, but here we come much too late I’ve never seen anything like it, we’ve discovered 40 cases in a single village. We urgently need more material and medical staff. "
