Save the Children welcomes the World Health Organisation (WHO) announcement marking the end of the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, but warns that the deadly epidemic has had a devastating long-term impact on vulnerable children.
The unprecedented outbreak in West Africa was the worst in recorded history with more than 11,313 deaths in total across West Africa, including 3,955 in Sierra Leone.
With the opening today of the International Ebola Recovery Conference in New York, the NGO Save the Children urges the international community to support Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea mobilizing the resources they need to finance their recovery plans.
