The Future Africa Awards has announced its ambassadors for a global campaign against Ebola in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
The TFAA young person of the year 2013, Ashish Thakkar, actresses, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde as well as singer, Asa, would lead the campaign.
Their aim is to gather youths all over the world to act against the virus and support the World Health Organisation, WHO, by donating a minimum of $25 and providing updates on social media.
The campaign will hold through the portal stopebola.com from Tuesday, November 11 to December 7, when the day the Future Africa Awards will hold.
Ms. Nnaji said the virus has been curtailed in Nigeria, which meant it could be defeated in other countries.
Ms. Jalade-Ekeinde said: "Just when the world has begun to pay attention to Africa as a destination for rapid growth and investment, we cannot allow Ebola define the narrative. We need to put a stop to this immediately, and young people need to take the lead."
