Arlette Kavugho (pictured holding a baby) was discharged from an Ebola ward in eastern Congo in March, but her troubles did not end there.
When the mother of six tried to return to work as a seamstress in her hometown of Butembo, her customers were too scared of catching the disease, despite doctors' assurances that she was no longer contagious.
In Katwa, outside of Butembo, Noella Masika, wearing blue scrubs, a surgical mask and a hair net, bathed a 1-year-old girl suspected of having Ebola in a small plastic bucket.
Masika lost 17 family members to Ebola, including both parents and two grandparents, but she counts herself fortunate to have survived.
"I feel compassionate and grateful for the care I received," she said. "I feel an obligation to contribute to the fight against Ebola."
