Red Cross Survivor Kit


Red Cross Survivor Kit


Red Cross survivor kit, including a mattress, clothing, household items and food to help survivors restart their lives in Sierra Leone. Many Ebola survivors had their possessions destroyed for fear that they were contaminated. International partners and NGOS responded by providing resources to survivors upon their discharge. Survivors were also often given cash resettlement allowances.
