Dutch charities launch anti-ebola fundraising drive

Dutch charity and aid group alliance SHO, which includes Oxfam Novib, Unicef and the Red Cross, are launching a joint campaign to raise money to combat ebola.

The campaign will consist of television and radio adverts to raise awareness of the disease and collect donations using the national charity bank account Giro 555.

The previous two Giro 555 campaigns raised €36m for victims of hurricane Haiyan in the Philippines and €5m for victims of the Syrian civil war.
