Ebola Diaries (Photos)
Monrovia

29 Sep 2014

SCREENSHOTS FROM "EBOLA DIARIES," FILMED BY DANIEL VAN MOLL.

At the end of September 2014 photojournalist Daniel van Moll travelled to Liberia to cover the outbreak of Ebola and the situation on the ground. The video gives insight to the enormous work of international health organizations like Doctors Without Borders who are operating the biggest Ebola Treatment Unit but also shows the struggle state health workers are experiencing while fighting the virus. Daniel visited the Ebola treatment unit of Doctors Without Borders in Monrovia where hundreds of volunteers provide help for Ebola infected patients. But he also visited rural counties in Liberia where international help did not yet arrive. But Daniel also focused on the social impact of the recent outbreak and visited a church in Monrovia to film the community trying to seek relief in their belief.
