Robert's Story : A hero in Liberia‏ (The World Investigates)


Alwihda Info | Par World Investigates - 20 Décembre 2014


Earlier this year in Liberia I met Robert, a burial worker with the Liberian Red Cross.

Every day he risks his life to recover the bodies of those who have died from Ebola. He does this extraordinarily dangerous work without pay. Why?

"The essence of my being here is to work for the Liberian people, the Red Cross and the world at large," he told me. "It's not to be on payroll."

Despite his poverty, Robert dreams of studying medicine to help his people. It reminds me of the passion that drove me to pick up a camera as a young man during my country's civil war.
