The Wider Image: Ebola survivors battle grief and stigma in eastern Congo
Noella Kavira Kitakya, 26, holding 16-month-old Kambale Eloge, whose mother died of Ebola, talks to Arlette Kavugho, 40, mother of six, in the courtyard of United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) creche for children whose families are suspected or confirmed Ebola cases, next to an Ebola treatment centre (ETC) in Katwa, near Butembo, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, October 2, 2019. 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.
