Valentines’s Day in the Ebola heartlands

Valentines’s Day in the Ebola heartlands

I was temporarily separated from my wife for a couple of months during the Ebola outbreak, as I stayed in the epicentre of Kenema.

We were locked down while my wife stayed in Freetown.

Now she intends to come to visit me during Valentine's Day.

It'll be hard to resist touching her.

We may make visits to relatives in the community who have lost loved ones.

It is difficult to celebrate this day joyously, so we would rather commemorate loved ones.
