West African leaders hope to contain the spread the Ebola virus by December of this year, but say it can only be done with robust international help. Countries most hit by the deadly virus, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, are appealing to their diaspora abroad to join the effort. A U.S.- African forum in Washington discussed the immediate needs of these countries and what African groups in the United States can do to help. Zlatica Hoke attended the meeting and has this report.
