On 4 November 2017 The Associated Press reported: Fraud by Red Cross workers and others wasted more than $6 million meant to fight the deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the organization confirmed Saturday [4 November]. The revelations follow an internal investigation of how money was handled during the 2014-2016 epidemic that killed more than 11,000 people in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. As much as $2 million disappeared as the result of 'likely collusion between Red Cross staff and employees at a Sierra Leonean bank, the investigation found. In Liberia, investigators found 'evidence of fraud related to inflated prices of relief items, payroll, and payment of volunteer incentives.' IFRC (International Federation of the Red Cross) estimated the loss at $2.7 million. And in Guinea, at least $1 million disappeared because of fraudulent billing practices by a customs clearance service provider. Two other investigations there are pending, IFRC said. Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern government and health systems. Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
