Ebola Survivors (For the Media)
In Sierra Leone, the UN World Food Programme provides food to Ebola survivors when they are discharged from the treatment centers. Since the outbreak, more than 800 people who have been sick with the disease and recovered, have received food assistance from WFP in Sierra Leone. This assistance helps survivors meet their basic food needs as they try to pick up their lives after Ebola. Hasting Ebola Treatment Centre, Waterloo District, Freetown, is managed by medical personnel from the Sierra Leone Armed Forces. The 120-bed treatment center has treated more than 400 Ebola patients to date.
