Sierra Leone Volunteer Doctor

Sierra Leone Volunteer Doctor

In this photo taken Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, volunteer doctor, Juli Switala, left, poses for a photograph alongside an unidentified Doctors Without Borders colleague in protective gear, at the Bo hospital Sierra Leone. Returning last month to Sierra Leone to treat Ebola victims after a break, volunteer doctor Switala was shocked to see the obituaries and photographs of colleagues who had died of the disease in her absence, pinned to a board in the treatment center. “That was quite terrible, to realize that people you met a few weeks ago, who were happy, helping you with this fight, have now died because of what they were treating,” Switala, a South African who works for Doctors Without Borders, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Sierra Leone.
