Since the Ebola epidemic peaked during the week of September 28th, with nearly 450 confirmed and suspected Ebola cases and deaths, the national and international responses have mobilized, behaviors that put people at risk for infection have changed on a mass scale, and the numbers of sick and dying have plummeted.  A recent situation report given by the Liberian Ministry of Health shows that nine of 15 counties reported no new Ebola cases during the period of Nov. 28 to Dec. 18. And of the 133 newly reported cases, 60 percent were in Montserrado County, where the capital city of Monrovia is located.  And most of the remaining cases are in two outbreaks.  FIND Liberia has been mobilizing support for children whose parents were victims of the deadly disease to rebuild their lives
