Two years following the declaration of an Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa, communities and governments in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone are moving into the recovery phase, determined to make their countries stronger before Ebola decimated families, economies and health care systems.
During the outbreak, farmers were not allowed to tend to their fields, affecting both food production and the ability of families to earn a livelihood.
Ismail Foday is a chief and farmer in Kailahun District, the epicentre of the outbreak in Sierra Leone.
