President Barack Obama met with the presidents of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia at the White House on Wednesday to pledge more U.S. support for the nations hardest-hit by the Ebola virus.

Obama also used the meeting to mark progress the U.S. has made in helping West African nations combat the Ebola epidemic, which has waned after killing more than 10,000 people last year. Sierra Leone is reopening schools for 1.8 million students this week after the outbreak forced the children to stay at home for nine months, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund.
