Ebola's children

Tuesday 28, Oct, 2014

Across Sierra Leone, the Ebola epidemic is affecting children in a number of ways. Children have been orphaned, some have contracted the virus, sadly some children have died from the disease. Children who have so far managed to escape direct contact with the virus have been victims of pervasive fear and no longer play with one another. Large public gatherings of any kind have been banned to help stop the spread of the disease, but this is hurting incomes and educations, and will soon begin to affect nutrition as well. In today’s blog, we tell the story of four children - Hawa, Salay, Marie and Christian – and how Ebola has affected each of them.
