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."
“Compared to other EMERGENCY projects I worked on, here in Sierra Leone, every mistake could be fatal.
We must think and act as a team: it is essential to control yourself and others, both national and international colleagues.
We work every day as if it were the first and we never let our guard down – never take for granted the security procedures despite it being hard to work in the protective suit.
My work involves contact with the local population and I have seen first-hand the growing understanding and awareness of the risk of Ebola.
We must face Ebola in a rational way, being aware of all the risks, but, crucially, being convinced of the importance of the work we do. “
