Madina Rahman at the Hastings Ebola Treatment Centre to promote the ‘ Never Again Ebola ‘ campaign and present donations to ebola survivors who were discharged from the Centre on Thursday, 22nd January 2015.


Dr Adonis Abboud, said: ‘’we are here today to create greater awareness of Ebola and the situation of vulnerable young people and the urgency to ensure ebola orphans, survivors, disabled and moralised groups are supported and cared for in this ebola crisis. We all have a responsibility to help and work with our local communities to prevent and stop Ebola. We must establish programmes for the economic empowerment and employment opportunities for youth in these deprived communities to work their way out of poverty and their families. ’’

Mrs Agnes Fornah, said: ‘’ we are here to help, as we believe that every child and young person should be accorded the opportunity to live a better life.  We must all explore ways in which the Government of Sierra Leone and international community can collectively contribute to overcoming this desperate and urgent needs of our peopleand put measures in place to ensure not only are the education and health systems better structured but these vulnerable groups have a role and voice in society’’.


The programme coordinator, Mohammed Jalloh (MAJ) called on Sierra Leoneans and international community to join the United Sierra Leone  ‘Never Again Ebola ‘ campaign to address both current and post ebola crisis. ‘’We are campaigning to say #NeverAgainEbola. We are seeking support for marginalised groups who have been greatly affected by Ebola’’, said Mohammed.


‘’We were hopeless and helpless. We had no idea about what to do and when Ebola is going to end. The United Sierra Leone isgiving us hope and help to fight against ebola and believe that ebola will end soon. However, we are very worried about our education and the ever-increasing teenage pregnancies in our communities, we need a solution to this problem’’, saidAgatha Ada Levi, United Sierra Leone campaigner
