Tracy - Sierra Leone

Tracy spent weeks fighting the 'disease of love' in Sierra Leone.

Ebola earned the nickname because most the people it affected were caring for others who already had the disease. The Australian aid worker says many of those she worked alongside at the Red Cross-run Ebola treatment centre had no medical background.

“They are simply people who want to help … as a registered nurse with 15 years’ experience, I can honestly say they give some of the most kind and considerate care I have ever witnessed.”
