Half a billion dollars is needed to continue fighting Ebola in West Africa, according to the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).

The money is part of an appeal for $3.1 billion the agency launched on Thursday to help 62 million children at risk in humanitarian crises around the world.

Ebola has killed more than 8,700 people mainly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, but now the number of cases is dropping.

Derrick Mbatha reports.
