The survivors are left to care for the sick even at risk of their own health. Ibrahim Sorie Kamara’s wife and other relatives died from Ebola. Here in Foredugu, Sierra Leone, he tries to keep his child hydrated and improve his chance of survival.
Ebola has infected at least 13,000 people in West Africa, and killed at least 5,000. If the deadly virus isn't stopped, the CDC estimates that up to 1.4 million people could be infected by the end of January 2015.
