We also pray that all the victims could be strong enough to face this disaster and the whole community of DRC could be cautious regarding the practices which can contaminate them from the severe Ebola diseases. As the sign of our concern and empathy to this case, we will transfer IDR 5.000.000,- (around 333 Euro) to the account of UEM Asia Department (...)," says the letter sent by the head of the Karo Batak church board (GBKP) from North Sumatra (Indonesia) to UEM in Wuppertal.
