Every time the phone rings, Leo Mulbah is struck with fear.
He says many Liberians living in America feel the same way right now.
"We get calls on an hourly basis, about friends, neighbors and family," says Mulbah, the president of the Liberian Association of Metro Atlanta. "We dread these phone calls saying that someone else has died."
Atlanta is a hub for the Liberian-American community. About a quarter of the 80,000 Liberian expatriates in the U.S. live there.
Many of them want to help fight the Ebola epidemic in their homeland.
