Mpls. nonprofit takes steps to fight Ebola epidemic

MINNEAPOLIS - A nonprofit based in Minneapolis is among those taking steps to fight the Ebola epidemic.

One Village Partners has been working in Sierra Leone for the past 12 years providing various community services.

Since the start of the outbreak though, the group has turned their focus to keeping the 7,000 people they serve safe.

"We had known about the outbreak in Guinea," said Chad McCodic. "We never thought that it was likely to cross borders. I don't think anyone saw the extent of this outbreak. No one saw this coming."

One Village Partners members say there are Ebola cases surrounding the villages where they work, but none in their immediate area.
