Ebola outbreak – B-roll of Aisha Kamara, 32, Nurse and Ebola survivor

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. 

Through its five pillared response, the IFRC, in support of the three affected National Societies, played a key role in helping to bring the outbreak to an end. Thousands of volunteers were involved in contact tracing, case management, beneficiary communications and social mobilization, psychosocial support, and safe and dignified burials (SDB).

Volunteers, survivors, and their families were stigmatized and discriminated against, many kicked out of their homes, or banned from markets. 

Aisha Kamara, 32, is a nurse and was working at the government hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone when the first case of Ebola surfaced there. She had also treated her father, who tested positive for Ebola. Two weeks after he passed away, Aisha was diagnosed with Ebola. She survived but lost nine family members to Ebola and now, on her own, cares for her own daughter and her sister’s four daughters.
