DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A Dallas-based charity will send medical supplies to West Africa to help fight the Ebola outbreak.

Next week volunteers with Medisend International will pack up and send thousands of boxes of the following basic safety items via six massive ocean containers:

- Masks
– Gauze
– Goggles
– Disposable gowns
– Shoe Covers
– Caps
– Lots of gloves
– IV poles

The supplies are going to areas that are already very depressed and operating under stressed conditions. The lack of supplies is just another burden on health aid workers, doctors and people suffering from the virus.

MediSend is working with their partners, including United Methodist Church, to deliver supplies to hospitals at the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak.

A spokesperson for the non-profit said they have the supplies, but additional funds and support is needed. The organization has the ability to ship up to $1 million worth of supplies if they raise the money.
