HARBEL, LIBERIA - AUGUST 23: A Chinese UN soldier prepares a truckload of Ebola relief aid after it was airlifted by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), on August 23, 2014 in Harbel, Liberia. The cargo plane arrived from Belgium carrying 75 tons (68 metric tons), of medical and hygiene supplies supplied by UNICEF with support from the US Office of Disaster Assistance to help contain the worst Ebola epidemic in history. It was the largest UN airlift of Ebola relief to arrive to Liberia, where international aid agencies and the Liberian government have been struggling to contain the epidemic of the deadly virus. The shipment included 30 tons of concentrated chlorine for disinfection, almost 1 million latex gloves, itravenous fluids, oral rehydration salts and therapeudic foods for patients undergoing treatment. The emergency items will be distributed by the Liberian Ministry of Health to 470 health facilities nationwide, according to UNICEF. The deadly virus has killed at least 1,400 people in West Africa and more in Liberia than any other country. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
