Jina Moore is one of those people that seems too good to be real. Her deep-throated laughter, her sense of humor and the depth of her caring for the most deprived and least fortunate of society set her apart. She puts herself in the line of fire, whether riding in an open jeep at night in Rwanda or wading into the swamps of death in Ebola-stricken Liberia.
In her “Surviving Ebola Brings Heartache And Hardship” Jina talks to Ebola’s victims and tells the story of a survivor of the disease that took away everyone he loved. A must-read for anyone who wants to know about the human side of the Ebola story.
DOLO TOWN, Liberia — Isaac is a man who has lost literally everything.
Ebola killed his family and stole his friends, who shunned him when he came back from the hospital. Neighbors wouldn’t let him use the water pump, so he had no water. Food is scarce, and best found by sharing, and Isaac had no one left to share with him.
