The Wider Image: Ebola survivors battle grief and stigma in eastern Congo
Vianey Kombi, 31, An Ebola survivor and caregiver, takes care of a three-month-old orphan girl who is confirmed to be suffering from Ebola, inside the Biosecure Emergency Care Unit (CUBE) at Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) Ebola treatment center (ETC) in Beni, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, October 6, 2019. Kombi was a maths teacher when he contracted Ebola last November. He found it impossible to return to his former job and now cares for Ebola patients. "It hurts when I walk past the school where I was teaching, and the children who recognise me start screaming in my direction: Ebola, Ebola," Kombi said. "We have all been accused of receiving money to say that we had Ebola," he said. "It hurts a lot when your community treats you as corrupt after you've been at your sickest."
