KEO = Knock Ebola Out
Use the Foundation as a vehicle for targeted non profit programs to help uplift Africa
Our strategy is to directly support activities to stabilize the outbreak, and potentially fill gaps where larger and less nimble global NGOs and governmental entities tend to struggle
We are driven by a "Can Do" mentality and a responsibility to give back
The KEO Foundation is led by an all-volunteer leadership team with deep roots in Africa. Collectively, they spend a significant time and focus on charitable and family activities related to Africa, including regular trips to the continent. The leadership team is driven by a responsibility and opportunity to leverage their extensive backgrounds in the business world in the USA and knowledge of Africa to help deliver creative solutions that are impactful to the communities we seek to serve.

During outbreaks of Ebola, those at highest risk include health care workers and family members
The 2014 Ebola outbreak is one of the largest Ebola outbreaks in history and the first in West Africa. It is affecting four countries in West Africa: Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone, but does not pose a significant risk to the U.S. public. CDC is working with other U.S. government agencies, the World Health Organization, and other domestic and international partners in an international response to the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
