Malaria in Sierra Leone
There is no bigger punishment for
a mother than to have to helplessly watch her child
The daughter is lying with a fever
in a malaria coma. The mother hopes that she can be
transported to Bo, the second largest city in Sierra
Leone, where “Doctors Without Borders”
have a hospital. For two years now William Daniels
from France has been occupying himself with the effects
of the malaria epidemic in Africa, Southeast Asia,
and Latin America.
Malaria is still one of the
most dangerous diseases for children. According to
UNICEF estimations, 800,000 children under the age
of five die of Malaria each year in Africa alone .
