SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The University of Notre Dame is raising money to provide medical supplies to help fight Ebola in hard-hit Sierra Leone and provide medical supplies to a clinic in Liberia run by a woman who recently completed a fellowship at the university.

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/110z2NJ ) the Notre Dame Unite campaign on campus continues through Oct. 17. The money raised will be channeled to an Illinois organization that specializes in getting supplies to affected areas or distributed to relief groups fighting Ebola in Africa.

Former fellow Yassah Lavelah works as a hospital nurse in Monrovia, Liberia. She says basic supplies such as gloves, protective clothing and hand sanitizer are needed.

She was among 25 Africans who came to Notre Dame through the Mandela Washington Fellowship.
