Ebola Survivors: Lionel and Christian

EMERGENCY-SIERRA-LEONE-01

Lionel and Christian with Unisa, staff and patient at the Center.

Lionel and Christian are brother and sister. Their mother died from Ebola a few weeks ago and they were hospitalized at our Ebola Treatment Center in Goderich along with their father.

They were extremely ill when they arrived. Each day as we cared for them, however, they gradually got better, eventually regaining their appetite, smiling, and even asking to draw pictures. After two weeks of treatment they were completely recovered – first Lionel and then Christian. Unfortunately, their father didn’t pull through.

Their aunt and uncle came to get them when they were discharged.

Lionel and Christian have won their battle against Ebola.
