TIAG and Accountants from Around the World Support Ebola Relief

TAG Foundation trustees have approved the disbursement of $10,000 from the foundation’s funds to assist Doctors Without Borders in their Ebola relief efforts in West Africa. TAG Foundation is the charitable organization founded by TIAG®, an international alliance of independent accounting firms and its broader organization, The TAG Alliances™.

Doctors Without Borders West Africa Ebola response started in March 2014 and counts activities in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. In response to a confirmed case in Mali, a Doctors Without Borders team arrived in the country this week to reinforce their regular mission and provide technical support to the Ministry of Health.

“With more than 9,000 reported cases, 4,876 deaths and a direct or indirect impact on jurisdictions where we have members, we want to take an active leadership role in helping to alleviate the devastating effects of this humanitarian crisis by supporting the heroic efforts of Doctors Without Borders,” says Peter Appleton Jones, chairman and founder of TIAG and TAG Foundation trustee. “The impact of politics and the media has only been to sow fear, hysteria and more sadly, division. We want to change that with positive efforts and energy.”
