OBSERVER: STREET CHILD’S BINTU IS BACK IN SCHOOL
But only with 30% of her colleagues
At the peak of the world’s interest in the Ebola crisis, Bintu Sannoh, a teenage girl supported by Street Child whose home in Kenema was hit by Ebola, wrote a diary article on the front page of the Observer.
She described the misery Ebola had brought to her family. In subsequent Observer articles, published in November and January, she depicts the stigma and poverty her family still faced – but how, through their own efforts, supported by Street Child, they were managing to cope.
