#Liberia is about to reopen its land borders due to the drastic decline in the number of ebola infections, joining #senegal and #GuineaBissau  who reopened its land borders with #Guinea a few weeks ago.

With just 2 new cases reported in #SierraLeone yesterday, the situation continues to improve which is fantastic news! There is still a lot of work to be done but the signs are getting better and better. When it's finally over, we're sure there will be huge celebrations like in this photo taken by Alex Martin Rios in northern #Cameroon #Unite4WestAfrica

#Mali has officially had no new cases of ebola for 42 days. #Liberia  has seen a massive decline in the numbers and is now only reporting a handful of cases each week. In #SierraLeone the number of new infections being recorded every day has dropped by a huge amount. It is still early days, and there is still a long way to go, but the situation is improving all the time. Help spread the message to promote a more positive image of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia! Photo from Manfred This Fab Trek #Unite4WestAfrica

Chinguetti in Mauritania, Timbuktu in Mali, and Tamegroute in Morocco.....just a few examples of towns in West Africa that have ancient manuscripts in their libraries. Here's a superb photo by Peter Tinti of a man displaying one of the manuscripts in Chinguetti.  #Unite4WestAfrica #Overlanding #Adventure #Travel #RoundTheWorld #TTOT

At LAST, some half decent balanced media coverage about the affected countries in West Africa - a beautiful photo of the beaches around Freetown, Sierra Leone, and an article entitled "The West Africa You Don't See". Read the article here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/30228059 #Unite4WestAfrica #Travel

Great to see so many organisations offer their support for the #Unite4WestAfrica movement, a big welcome and thank you to all of those who have recently joined! Help us keep sharing a more positive image of Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and West Africa in general, to help put the outbreak into perspective - Africa is continent, not a country!
