Wave of Protests in Sierra Leone: 14 Injured People Received, An EMERGENCY Vehicle Caught Up in the Violence
"We are working to treat patients, expand the number of beds and stock up on food and water to cope with this crisis."
“Grandma Ebola” is the affectionate nickname given to this woman by our staff in Sierra Leone.
Yye Kargbo is 74 years old – an age not so easy to reach in a country where life expectancy is just 46. She also has an extraordinary strength: she survived Ebola.
When we discharged her on Sunday, she thanked us for taking care of her and for the “discharge pack”: a pack of rice, beans, flour and oil that we give to all the patients who leave our Ebola Treatment Center to help them start over after the illness .
Good luck Yve Kargbo!
