    Ebola survivors face health problems

    Monday, 22 December 2014 00:00 By Bridgett Milton

    The program chairperson for Ebola Survivor Network in Liberia, Patrick S. Faley, is warning that survivors from the deadly Ebola virus across the country risk losing their sights.

    Mr. Faley said survivors have reported a wide range of health and mental health problems after being discharged from treatment centers, noting that many Ebola survivors complain of eye and hearing problems, weakness, joint and back pains, impotency and generalized pains.
    "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
    -Nelson Mandela
