Guinea

We're on the ground in Guinea, helping families and communities to recover from the Ebola epidemic.

We've been working in Guinea for more than 15 years. Alongside the Guinean government, we're improving healthcare for mothers and children, and support family planning services. We also support health and nutrition teaching in schools, and are working to improve the quality of education.

Ebola

When the Ebola crisis hit Guinea, our teams worked with communities, organisations and journalists to raise awareness of the disease and prevent it spreading. We supplied hygiene kits to families and trained community health workers to trace people who had been in contact with infected patients. 

In the aftermath, our staff supported child survivors and trained 13,000 teachers in Guinea in how to respond to traumatised children.
