Ebola waning - but situation remains so dire for thousands of orphans
WHO data on Ebola continues to encourage. Just 30 cases in the region last week, the lowest figure for 11 months – 0 cases in Liberia and only 9 cases in Sierra Leone, Street Child’s two focus countries.
This positive news in terms of the ‘big picture’ is small comfort to the orphans however. Even after Ebola has totally gone, they will still, of course, be orphans. And thousands of them are in hugely precarious situations, right now.
