Description : Jenneh Kaizolu, 39 years old, lost her mother, brother and two sisters to Ebola. She is now taking care of 25 children: six of her own, plus 19 nephews and nieces, all Ebola orphans. ICRC delegates from the water and habitat team distributed basic household items to the family and assessed their access to water.

ICRC website, photo gallery of the 8th May 2015:

" [...] After dealing for more than a year with the worst Ebola outbreak in its history, Liberia has just been declared Ebola-free. Vigilance is still needed, but the country can now focus on healing the wounds inflicted on communities and help them build a brighter future.
[...] Early this year, the ICRC launched a programme to help Ebola orphans like Jenneh's nephews and nieces. We're giving direct assistance to the children and the families hosting them, referring them to other humanitarian organizations whenever needed and encouraging the government and child protection agencies to give them the help that they need as children."
