Prince William sends comforting message to Ebola sufferers

British royal Prince William has thrown his support behind a music video raising awareness for Ebola by recording a comforting message to families living in areas devastated by the disease.

The Duke of Cambridge voiced his concern over the deadly epidemic, which has claimed the lives of more than 5,000 victims in western Africa, and his message coincides with a music video filmed in Sierra Leone by producers at Future View.


The video is to accompany a song called 'Ebola is Real' and features educational clips of how to respond to an Ebola sufferer.


In a video posted on Future View's Twitter.com profile, the Prince says, "I've been watching with great concern what's been happening in West Africa due to Ebola. I wanted to take time to add my name to this video by Future View called Ebola is Real. It's an educational piece that will keep you guys safe on how to treat and prevent the spread of Ebola. Health care workers down in West Africa have been doing a tremendous job and long may that continue. I want to congratulate them on the tackling and prevention of the disease - it's a horrible disease and working in very difficult circumstances. So please listen to the health care workers. They know what they're talking about. I just want to say keep safe - the world is thinking of you and be safe."
