The Wider Image: Ebola survivors battle grief and stigma in eastern Congo
Kitambala Kavugho, 38, an Ebola survivor who works as a caregiver, takes care of one-year-old Chamim, an orphan whose mother recently died of Ebola, at the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) creche for children whose families are suspected or confirmed Ebola cases, next to an Ebola treatment centre in Beni, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, October 7, 2019. "I give back the good that was given to me. They took a good care of me to heal, to survive the wicked virus; now, I feel it's my duty to do a good deed by taking care of children whose parents have Ebola," Kavugho said. "We have two children here, siblings. I care for them as I do for my own children. I give them the maternal affection they have lost. They are in the observation for 21 days to ensure that they will not be a danger to others before handing them over to their father," she added. "I refuse the idea of the possibility of relapse, I do everything necessary to protect myself, wearing a protection blouse is indisputable, I shower before returning home."
