The largest Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo may be over, but Christivie Mulonda will feel its effects for the rest of her life.
The 5-year-old became an orphan during the outbreak, losing her mother and three other members of her family to the deadly virus.
Christivie is alive because of your love. You sent contact tracers down the red clay path that leads to her home, where they discovered the family sick with symptoms of Ebola. Thanks to generous donors like you, these contact tracers had received training on how to act quickly — they sent for an ambulance and transported the family to the treatment center to get help as soon as possible.
By loving your neighbors, you made a strong response to the Ebola outbreak possible. You made sure our team on the ground could respond immediately, work effectively and stay until the end.
