Marion Robinson worked as a psychologist at the MSF hospital in Qayyarah, a town some 70 kilometres from Mosul, in Iraq’s Ninewa governorate. It had been under the control of the Islamic State (IS) group for two and a half years before the Iraqi army retook control of the area at the end of August 2016.
West Africa: Ebola closure
More than two and half years after the Ebola outbreak was officially declared, MSF is now closing its last projects dedicated to caring for people who survived the disease.
The Ebola outbreak that swept across West Africa infected more than 28,700 people and killed more than 11,300 men, women and children. Whole families were ripped apart and communities were devastated by the disease.
Despite the horror of Ebola there were moments of hope. Take a look through this album to meet some of the dedicated health workers who responded in West Africa and the patients who helped us to keep on going. Find out more: http://bit.ly/2dOtzTn
