With cases of Ebola starting to travel outside of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea – the outbreak is gaining more and more attention on social media. Well one campaign started by Sierra Leonean blogger Hannah Foullah is getting a lot of attention in her country. She wanted to end the prejudice she feels that Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad have been facing because of Ebola. She asked people to send her photos of themselves via Facebook. She’s put slogans on them, affirming what Hannah feels is a strong positive identity.
