Maria fights elbola(Cr) Elizabeth Stevens

When Africa was reeling under Ebola, Maria fought back. She is one of the reasons that her community is winning the battle against the dreaded disease. Her prime technique was to go door-to-door with life-saving messages. A simple and effective move that got the message through.  "Because I am a nurse and I know these communities, people listen to me. Now, people are following the rules to prevent cholera and Ebola. If we fight these diseases with safe practices, we will win the battle."

"One day I saw a girl sleeping on the road and she was so, so dirty. I bought soap, washed her and carried her on my back. I thought her Mum would come and get her but it's now two years and no one has come." Louise has been running from conflict most of her life. Tragically, her husband and three of her children died from disease. But this little girl has given Louise the strength to carry on. A new life for Louise, a new family for the abandoned girl.
