Saturday, the 21st of September, is a day I will never forget in my life.
I was out working with MSF [Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders] as a health promotion officer in Foya, in the north of Liberia, visiting villages and telling people about Ebola: how to protect themselves and their families, what to do if they start to develop symptoms and making sure everyone has the MSF hotline number to call.
Later that night, my brother called me. "Your wife has died." I said, "What?" He said, "Bendu is dead."
