The International Judo Federation (IJF) has made a $10,000 (£7,000/€8,000) donation to the National Ebola Response Centre in Sierra Leone.
The ebola virus outbreak has claimed the lives of more than 450 people in the country, including five judoka, while more than 58 further athletes are in quarantine homes and regions.
"I will like to thank you very much again for your humanitarian support towards the Ebola virus that has killed over 450 people in Sierra Leone," said Idrissa Massaquoi, President of the Sierra Leone Judo Association.
In August, African judokas decided against competing at the 2014 World Judo Championships in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk to prevent the risk of spreading the deadly virus.
Massaquoi thanked President Marius Vizer and all members of the IJF for the donation.
"We have received a letter of gratitude from chief executive of the National Ebola Response Centre, retired Major Palo Conteh, which is a very big recognition of the support and roll that the IJF is playing to help the Government by providing aid to its Ebola affected members," he added.
To date, a total of 8,235 people have been reported as having died from Ebola in six countries - Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria, Mali and the United States.
More than 20,000 cases have been reported in all.
