The following post is written by Sara Bangura Radigheri, one of our nurses who works in our hospital in Sierra Leone.

"Many people don't understand why I stay here despite everything. I believe everyone has the right to healthcare, without discrimination. That's why I do this job. Ebola is a terrible disease, but with the right care it can be treated.

If this epidemic had broken out in the Western world, everyone would be active in fighting it and the patients would receive the best care. Here it is not so. People were simply being abandoned. Nobody invested resources or energy to curb the epidemic, because they thought it was a problem restricted to Africa only.

Well, it's not like that, as you can see. It's reaching you as well now.
Of course I'm scared, of course. But I think these people have the right to be treated like everyone else.

I'm afraid. But I stay. EMERGENCY stays.

Because somebody has to do something. We stay here to defend you, as well. Because this is not just an African problem anymore.. it is everybody's problem.

We are as scared as you are ... but instead of closing our eyes and pretending not to notice, we are trying to do something."
