Obviously, we are all a little concerned about Ebola and hoping for a cure ASAP. In response to that, supermodel Naomi Campbell hopes to raise awareness and funds to fight Ebola, by hosting the Fashion For Relief runway shows. The shows will take place during New York’s Fashion Week in February and London’s Fashion Week in Campbell’s hometown.

“I’m scared”, admitted Campbell in reference to the deadly disease, adding that she has a home in Kenya and already works with orphanages there. The legendary model is concerned that “people don’t have a clear idea about what Ebola is” and hopes that her events could further educate the public and raise funds to help stop the spread of that disease.

During the past years, Naomi Campbell has hosted Fashion For Relief shows in cities from Cannes to New York, by convincing friends and other supermodels, like Kate Moss and Eva Herzigova, to participate in the charitable catwalks. Her Fashion For Relief shows were successfully established in 2005, with her first show helping to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Since then she has called upon the fashion industry, by using her project, to raise funds for other worthy causes. The most recent being Japan earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

With the events still in the planning stage, Naomi Campbell added that she is interested in reaching out to Jeffrey Wright to work out a “charitable partnership”. She mentioned as well, that she has a “surprise, grand dame in mind” to take to the catwalk. Any guesses?

Finally, the supermodel added that as a black woman, she feels the need to fight the Ebola crisis. “Ebola does not discriminate,” she said. If this is anything like Fashion For Relief, this will be a huge accomplishment. A very fashionable one, of course.
