Rebecca Zammit Lupi, a 14-year-old cancer patient, receives a gift from radiographers Maria Elena Grech and Angelina Dimitrova after her final radiotherapy treatment session at Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre in Mater Dei Hospital, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Tal-Qroqq, Malta June 4, 2020. Dimitrova said "It's always bittersweet to have a paediatric patient. Their presence brings joy, but the reason behind their attendance harbours a lot of sorrow. Although we recognise that each patient is on an earth shattering and life-altering journey, when it comes to children, it always hits a softer spot, which is why we enjoy celebrating the ends of their treatments that little bit louder and commemorating it with a small gift personal to every child."

Radiographer Maria Elena Grech explains how radiotherapy works to Rebecca Zammit Lupi, a 14-year-old cancer patient, while showing her images, at Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre in Mater Dei Hospital, during the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Tal-Qroqq, Malta, May 15, 2020. Rebecca is now considering radiotherapy as a possible career choice. Grech said "It was fantastic to see that Becs was so keen on learning the processes that led to her daily radiotherapy treatment. She would ask us many questions about our role as radiographers and what she would need to study to enter the course at university. The fact that we were able to inspire Becs even during such difficult times, made us really proud of our profession." REUTERS/Darrin Zammit Lupi SEARCH "REBECCA LUPI" FOR THIS STORY.

Lina is determined to speak to the truth tribunal after she - and many women like her - was forced to remain silent during the conflict because paramilitary fighters controlled local authorities. "I had to put on a mask to hide the pain that I felt from my child. After 22 years, I can declare the facts to the competent authorities," she said.

A newspaper displayed on a stand shows a headline of the Marburg virus outbreak in the Ugandan capital Kampala October 6, 2014. A man has died in Uganda's capital after an outbreak of Marburg, a highly infectious hemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola, authorities said on Sunday, adding that a total of 80 people who came into contact with him were quarantined. Marburg starts with a severe headache followed by haemorrhaging and leads to death in 80 percent or more of cases in about nine days. It is from the same family of viruses as Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa in recent months. The health ministry said in a statement that the 30-year old radiographer died on Sept. 28 while working at a hospital in Kampala. REUTERS/James Akena (UGANDA - Tags: DISASTER HEALTH SOCIETY)

A radiographer takes a X-ray of a patient's chest at the Afghan German International hospital in Kabul March 9, 2014. Despite decades of conflict in Afghanistan, and several recent militant attacks, the country's capital Kabul is home to a vibrant youth scene of musicians, artists, athletes and activists. Shopping malls and cafes stand in the city, which is nonetheless beset by infrastructure problems and instability. Afghanistan is preparing for an election on April 5 that should mark the first democratic transfer of power in the country's history, but it has been hit by a tide of violence as the Islamist Taliban movement has ordered its fighters to disrupt the vote and threatened to kill anyone who participates.
