    Life After Ebola: Songs From The Ashes

    Gospel singer Amilia Wesseh, 36, is a mother of four. Along with one of her daughters, she fell sick to Ebola in September. Happily, both of them survived the virus after treatment. However, though she regained her health, she lost all her belongings due to Ebola. "When I was in the treatment centre, all of our belongings were burned in order to get rid of the virus. I lost everything. The only clothes I had were those on my back, and I had to start from scratch. After I was discharged from the treatment centre, no one came to help or support me as people were afraid of the disease." Through WFP's support for survivors, Amelia and her daughters receive nutritious food and cash through their mobile phone.

    Life After Ebola: Children Are Back To School, So Are WFP School Meals

    In Liberia, schools were closed for up to eight months because of the Ebola epidemic. Children, who were forced to stay at home, missed not only their classes but also WFP-provided school meals that many depend on. One of the schools in the Bomi County, the Beh Town Public School reopened in March and WFP resumed its school meals programme already in April. So far, more than 100,000 children in schools across Liberia have received daily, nutritious meals.
