On this day when I was due to be landing home again in Liberia, I am delighted to share with you the first documentary short film in our project sharing the stories of those whose voices are not heard in the Ebola crisis.
La Jolla, CA. - As we celebrate here in America:
Dear Iyabo & Deborah,
Greetings from Liberia! Here we are again with new cases of Ebola Virus Disease in Liberia. The source of the EBV is being traced to a dead dog eaten by 6 people out of whom 2 people were dead already, 2 have been tested positive and the other 2 are being followed up. The village where the re-emergence of EVD started is being vigorously monitored. With the experience of the past outbreak, I think this one could be easily contained before it spreads all over the country. We are back to counting up from the beginning again.
Thanks so much for your continues support and collaboration..
