It can be recalled that Liberia has few days ago recorded the death of a 17 years old boy whose corpse swab proved POSITIVE for Ebola. This is almost seven weeks after WHO had declared Liberia as free of Ebola. The dead boy reportedly had NO travel history to Sierra Leone or Guinea. Medical Epidemiologists are trying to figure out how or where he caught the virus. It has brought a damper on otherwise hopeful spirits.

However, a photograph & caption by Sierra Leone government media team has captured the mood of unity, solidarity & hopeful defiance against Ebola amongst the three Presidents of Ebola-affected Mano River Union (MRU) countries during their one-day MRU Summit meeting of Sunday June 28th 2015 in Conakry, Guinea.

The Summit meeting was called to prepare for United Nations Secretary General's High Level Meeting to discuss Post-Ebola economic recovery next week.

MRU Leaders have to give Hope & Smiles to Citizens amidst despair over terrible Ebola Virus

Accompanying this update is the photo itself which was captioned as follows:-
Sierra Leone President Koroma the super star, waving back with his clenched solidarity fist to a large cheering crowd of citizens living in Conakry during last weekend's MRU Summit. The crowd of men and women whom he was waving to, were reportedly waving back in visible, overly proud & excited mood; all from seeing the hardworking and beloved President.
Guinea's President Alpha Conde, the host president, reacted by saying: "You see, these people are here for you. You are president of Sierra Leone and Co-President of Guinea".
Liberia's President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf smiled beautifully as she appreciated the deeply poignant moment in the Mano River basin.


Indeed, the MRU Leaders have to give Hope & Smiles to their Citizens amidst despair over terrible Ebola Virus.
