Ebola: From the other side of the string

Ebola: From the other side of the string

In Freetown, Sierra Leone, Ebola has forced thousands of families to be isolated into quarantine areas, often located in the poorest areas of the city. Yet quarantines are causing intolerable conditions for people already struggling to cope, and risk spreading the deadly virus even further.

As of December 2014, we have reached more than one million people in our Ebola response, by supplying water, hygiene equipment and sanitation to treatment and care centers, and boosting mass publication about the disease. We are also training front line community health workers and providing them with personal protective clothing.
