Dr Bernard Kianu from the health ministry distributes information leaflets about Ebola fever and how to prevent transmission. Although communities are sometimes only a few kilometres apart, movement is limited to foot and pedal power and even small distances can involve major effort. Bicycles loaded with grain and other supplies are pushed for days down sandy roads.
