Video: Liberian mother speaks about losing close to forty relatives


The battle against Ebola isn’t just against the virus but also the fear and ignorance surrounding the disease, said Peter Salama, global Ebola emergency coordinator of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) at a press conference on November 3. The UN reports that thousands have been orphaned, sometimes turned away by extended families, and many are in quarantine centers not knowing if their parents are alive or dead. This video was produced by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and features an interview with a Liberian mother in Lofa County who has lost many relatives due to Ebola.
