Both women are Ebola survivors who now work as caregivers. Kavira survived Ebola last June with her two brothers but their mother and close family members succumbed to the virus. "I am often afraid to relapse but I was reassured that once victorious, there is no risk," she said. "I was treated effectively and it allowed me to heal. Others did not have the same luck," she added. "It is sad to see children becoming orphans because of Ebola." REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "EBOLA ZOHRA" FOR THIS STORY.

"I could see her crying in the middle of the fire, but it was difficult to save her. By the time we could reach her, she was badly burned." Setara's father carried her for two days to Bangladesh. The young girl received no treatment for the severe burns to her feet. Her feet healed. But she has no toes. The trauma has scarred her psychologically. "She has been mute from that day, and doesn't speak to anyone," her mother said. "She only cries silently."

The Wider Image: Healing burns with fish skin 
Researchers in Brazil are experimenting with a new treatment for severe burns using the skin of tilapia fish, an unorthodox procedure they say can ease the pain of victims and cut medical costs. Frozen pig skin and even human tissue have long been placed on burns to keep them moist and allow the transfer of collagen, a protein that promotes healing. Brazil's public hospitals, however, lack human and pig skin supplies and the artificial alternatives easily available in Western countries. Instead, gauze bandage, which needs regular changing - often painfully - is the norm. Tilapia is abundant in Brazil's rivers and fish farms, which are expanding rapidly as demand grows for the mildly flavored freshwater fish. Scientists at the Federal University of Ceara in northern Brazil have found that tilapia skin has moisture, collagen and disease resistance at levels comparable to human skin, and can aid in healing.

Fah Jam, a five-month-old baby elephant, receives help from handlers as she arrives for a hydrotherapy treatment as part of a lengthy rehabilitation process to heal her injured front left foot at a rehabilitation center in Pattaya, Thailand January 5, 2017. The baby elephant was injured at three months old when she got stuck in an animal snare put up by villagers to prevent elephant intrusions in Chanthaburi province. The hydrotherapy is thought to help her exercise her bicep muscles and help her walk again as she has been refusing to stand on all four legs. REUTERS/Athit Perawongmetha

A leech in quarantine is seen in a jar at the Ricarimpex laboratory in Eysines, Southwestern France, July 22, 2016. The leech, Hirudo medicinalis, is an invertebrate 3 cm long in adulthood which after being considered indispensable in the 19th century to cure many affections such as osteoarthritis, phlebitis, tension, then fell in desuetude while it harboured qualities that made it indispensable today in plastic surgery.
