“I am working with marginalised communities where many didn’t believe in this Ebola issue. Even late last year they thought if you carried people to the Ebola Treatment Unit they would kill you."
"We have been able to change this. The community calls for help if someone is sick and every time someone dies, they call the burial team. This is because we have been going into the community, talking to them, and going on the radio to spread awareness."
Rose T. Teah from the Lutheran Church of Liberia is Mobiliser of the Week for Grand Cape Mount County.
She has been recognised for her dedication in rallying people, using radio, community forums, involving the ETU outreach team and traditional, Muslim and Christian leaders to bring groups together and demonstrate positive behaviour change. Congratulations Rose! Together we can beat Ebola!
