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.
