An Ebola survivor turns to help his community recover in Guinea

Towards the end of 2014, the life of 26-year-old Sâa Yawo Koumassadouno, also known as ‘Papus’, was turned upside down not once, but twice. It all started on 9 October 2014 at the Ebola treatment centre (CTE) in the town of Guéckédou in the Guinée Forestière region of Guinea. Two days after being admitted to the centre (run by Médecins Sans Frontières and financed by the European Union), Papus was informed that he had tested positive for Ebola, the dreadful haemorrhagic fever devastating the country.
