When Ebola Hits a Liberian Family

Fear has provoked many unfortunate incidents in Liberia as the country grapples with the deadly Ebola outbreak. But many are working hard and courageously, despite the lack of an international response that would supply the equipment and medical help to stem the virus. AllAfrica's Patience Handful Dalieh blogs about how the disease hit close to home.

In this Ebola time, you can't protect yourself without protecting others around you otherwise you'll still fall prey to the virus. Even by talking to your neighbors on how they can prevent themselves is a form of helping them and yourself at the same time.
