One year since the confirmed Ebola outbreak in Guinea, a lot of fear and stigma remain in communities affected by the disease. Some communities prevent responders from entering, mistakenly believing they are responsible for spreading the virus. Volunteers with the Red Cross Society of Guinea have experienced this resistance, but through continued engagement, barriers are slowly being broken down.

Ebola est une réalité 
La Croix Rouge Guinéen a consenti beaucoup de sacrifice
Beaucoup de ses volontaires sont mort dans la lutte contre Ebola à cause d’un population qui lui lance des cailloux, des bâtons….
Peuple de Guinée réveillons-nous 
Qui est ton ennemie Ebola ou la Croix Rouge Guinéen
