Ebola: A poem for the living

United Methodist Communications, Chocolate Moose Media and iheed have collaborated to produce an animated video for use in West Africa that helps dispel myths about how Ebola is spread and promotes prevention of the disease.

United Methodist Communications provided partial funding for Chocolate Moose Media to create the video, which will be produced in various languages, including English and French with West African voices and other West African languages. This is an international co-production, involving production in ten countries: Canada, Guinea, India, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Nigeria, South Africa, Sierra Leone Switzerland and the United States. The production team of over 20 persons was headed by Firdaus Kharas as Director.

United Methodist Communications, the global communications agency of The United Methodist Church, is using a variety of approaches to help educate people in Ebola-affected areas about prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease as part of the United Methodist response to the outbreak.

Chocolate Moose Media is a multi-award winning media production company, specializing in media for social change.

The executive producer of the video is iheed, a mobile-health-education innovator.
