Sierra Leone: Blessing Raises Everyone’s Spirits

Sometimes there are moments of exhaustion and hopelessness…but then, something like this happens, an unexpected surprise that raises everyone’s spirits.

Her name is Blessing, she is 10 months old and the daughter of an ‘Ebola survivor’, Marie, that we first took care of in Lakka, and then in the Goderich Ebola Treatment Centre. A few days ago, Marie came back to our hospital to say hi to doctor Gina, whom she hadn’t seen in three years, to show her a baby girl that she thought she would never have.

— Rossella Miccio, President of EMERGENCY, from Sierra Leone
