Faces of the Ebola response
This photo gallery tells the stories of people contributing to contain the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Our highest gratitude for their hard work and dedication.
"We came to Sierra Leone because we felt that there is a need to help our neighbours to fight Ebola from our experiences gained by fighting the disease in Liberia. We believe we can make a difference in helping to bring the numbers down the way we did in Liberia."
- T. Cooper, Administrator and Deputy Director of First Responder Team, Liberia
"If we respond aggressively with individual patient care – if we have enough people to deliver care for as many hours in the day that patients need – we can save the vast majority from dying with simple and available supportive treatments, even in the absence of an Ebola-specific medication."
- Rob Fowler, a critical care physician
"It makes a difference when you work for a humanitarian objective, you feel you are doing something for good… We transported the first Ebola samples from the Guekedou area to Conakry when the outbreak started. That flight was quite emotive as we knew that we were carrying biological materials at risk. But the health agents had explained everything to us and we felt safe as well as responsible."
- Julian Bec, pilot, Guinea
"I am grateful that my Ebola experience can impact the knowledge of our health workers and help to eradicate this disease from Liberia."
- Austin Jallah, expert patient trainer, Liberia
