Ebola Hero: Samson Koroma

June 22nd, 2016 Posted by Heroes No Comment yet

I was a student and a football player, but when Ebola came everything stopped so I decided to go and join in the fight.

I played a great role in the fight. When I joined the centre I was first assigned to mix chlorine and later they changed my work to collecting patients from the far hill side.

I learnt how to attend to Ebola patients. I learnt how to attend to people that are sick, and how to approach them.

My most powerful experience has to do with the treatment centre. The way people were struggling, especially children who were undergoing difficulties like vomiting and messing up themselves, I was not happy at all. That caused a lot of fear in me, but I summoned up courage and determination and said if children were suffering from the virus who was I not to suffer for them?

My hope for the future is to become an accountant.
