Sierra Leone’s Leading Ebola Doctor Contracts Ebola
The doctor at the forefront of Sierra Leone’s fight against the unprecedented Ebola outbreak in the region has contracted Ebola himself, Reuters reported Wednesday.
As of this week, Ebola has claimed 632 lives in three West African countries, according to the World Health Organization. Virologist Sheik Umar Khan, 39, has treated more than 100 victims of the disease. Sierra Leone Health Minister Miatta Kargbo called him a “national hero” and said she would “do anything and everything in my power to ensure he survives,” according to Reuters.
Last month, Khan told Reuters that he was aware of the risk of himself contracting the disease, which kills up to 90 percent of those infected. “I am afraid for my life, I must say, because I cherish my life,” he said. “Health workers are prone to the disease because we are the first port of call for somebody who is sickened by disease. Even with the full protective clothing you put on, you are at risk.”

Damn :/

wow! I hope he recovers. This virus is spreading and the West African governments are not managing the crisis well…I believe we need intervention from the West before this reaches the cities such as Freetown and Monrovia. When it does, its going to be even more difficult to stop.

    This is how me and my family are living these months.

    My mom has a great job but doesn’t make enough to support all five of us. She’s working extra hours but it isn’t enough and with school starting for my brothers and them needing over priced uniforms, we’ve all reached the end of our rope.

    On top of this, my mom also has diabetes and sometimes has trouble getting the money for her medication. And as people who have/are dealing with this kind of disease you know that everything is so much more harder for her. When she gets a paper cut it can last a month and when she gets caught in the rain, she is guaranteed to get sick and as she says so many times “[she] cannot afford to get sick”.

    Right now we are trying to move from this house into a smaller, more affordable one but the chances of that happening anytime soon are dwindling. In addition to this, my mom wants to visit our sick grandfather in New York who has multiple myeloma. If anyone who has heard of this would know that it affects your organs and there is no cure for it. We are all hoping for one last visit before he passes on.

    I’m asking that you please help us. I don’t like this life for my brothers who have to wonder if it was okay that they are ramen for breakfast or that my mother can’t see her father one last time. Anything and everything you donate will be used to help my brothers and mother have an easier more enjoyable life.

    I have set up a fundraiser and a paypal on my blog. Again, anything and everything you can spare will be much appreciated and if you cannot donate, please share this so that it gets around.

    SIGNAL BOOST THIS PLEASE

    Lakka, Sierra Leone

    Who we are

    Lakka lives and breathes beach tourism. We’re used to tourists, we love tourists and we want more tourists! We have a stunning, long beach, plenty of places to sit under an umbrella and enjoy the sun, read a book and sip from a coconut (or sip something stronger).

    There are plenty of places for you to stay with us – several privately owned beach quarters and we are busy developing a community owned and operated community tourism facility (under construction right now just as this web site is – so ask us how progress is going when you come by!)

    Those of us not involved in tourism support ourselves through fishing, farming, gardening and sand mining.

    We are Sherbro, Temne and Mende, Fullah, Limba, Kono and Loko.

    History

    Lakka was founded by Pa Lakka, a Sherbro fisherman.

    Our heroes: Pa David Johnson encouraged investors to develop some of our land so that the youth in our community would have jobs.  Mr Zechariah Douglas is also admired by many of us because he brought investors who constructed a hotel on village land. Mr Bruno Gaston is one of our heroes because of his role in bringing electricity to us!
