Years after Probe Exposed Corruption in U.S. Africa Ebola Aid, Millions Keep Flowing-Judicial Watch

Years after a federal audit exposed corruption in a multi-billion-dollar U.S. government program to combat Ebola in Africa, the money keeps flowing and the deadly virus still plagues the world’s second-largest continent. This month the Trump administration announced an additional $56 million in humanitarian assistance to help out with the ongoing outbreak of the disease in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The allocation means American taxpayers have dedicated a whopping $266 million in the last year alone to assist Africans with Ebola, even as the European Commission approves a landmark vaccine that is already being administered in the region.
