Young adults from the Sierra Leone Annual Conference reenact skits relating to Ebola virus prevention and treatment in effort to educate. Their efforts are target people who cannot read or write or have access to radio and new media. The person in the head wrap represents an herbalist who works in “African magic.” In the skit, the young man affected with Ebola is brought to the herbalist but dies. The brother who was exposed to the Ebola patient survives as he reports for (medical) treatment early. The message is that no superstitious power can cure Ebola; contact with an infected person can lead to infection; and there is a better chance for survival if one reports it early. The training was developed by the Youth and Young Adult Ministries. Photo by Phileas Jusu, UMNS
