Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Ertharin Cousin called on all parties to work together in order to lessen the suffering of Ebola victims in Freetown, Wednesday. “We can make the difference here”, she said.

The WFP distributed food to more than 100 quarantined households at the Mataska Community School in Maforki chiefdom, Port Loko district. The food package consists of rice, pulses, vegetable oil and salt.

More footage that the WFP released from the Hasting Ebola Treatment Centre, Freetown, shows the aid workers in Sierra Leone have strict hygiene procedures to avoid contamination and the spread of the deadly virus.
