In the spring 2014 Sierra Leone, a small West-African coastal country, was hit by a catastrophe among its neighbours.
It crossed the borders from Guinea to Sierra Leone. It was in the news all-around the world. Ebola.

Towards autumn, it started to look like the spreading of the virus was about to spiral out of control.
There was urgent need for action. International help was deployed to the country. Local operators bent over backwards.
Sierra Leone Red Cross started to recruit people to join the battle, where the enemy was invisible but surely fatal.

Any volunteers? Yes. Thousands.
