BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - A Christian health care group based in coastal Georgia is sending an additional 3,000 protective suits to Africa to protect workers helping battle the Ebola outbreak in west Africa.

Vice President of MAP International Mark Mosely told the Florida Times-Union Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1rOyMqS ) that the additional suits being shipped from Brunswick will bring the total number of suits the organization has sent to west Africa to 27,000. The suits cover workers from head to toe and include face masks.

Officials say the suits and two 20-foot shipping containers filled with antibiotics, pain relief medicine and other supplies are being sent to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. International health care officials have said the disease has killed more than 2,200 people.
