Out of Quarantine

Description

Hindowa, an 11-year-old boy who participates in World Vision’s sponsorship program in Sierra Leone, was quarantined because of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

When somebody dies of Ebola, all the people who have had possible contact with the patient are quarantined for a period of 21 days.

"Being at home for 21 days was not easy for my entire family, but it was necessary,” Hindowa says.

“I have heard about the way this Ebola wipes out an entire family. To me, it was for our own good, though it stopped me from playing around my house or move around the town."

World Vision assisted quarantined families, carried out Ebola awareness campaigns, provided safe and dignified burials, and distributed medical supplies to help prevent the spread of the disease.
