Thus Far, numerous health professional of the United States are infected with the deadly Ebola disease. The relatives of these health workers prayed day and night for the lives of their loved ones.
Lindsey Hallen, a 31 year old nurse has decided to work with the sick patients of the West Africa. The lady nurse with an experience of two years merely wants to contribute in the fight against the disease. The lethal disease has killed around 8,000 people and sent hospital to nearly 21,000 people.
Most of her friends were shocked when they heard the news. They all asked the same question: why are you putting your life at risk? Will you be able to bear the difficulties and see the brutal deaths of thousands of people in Africa? She replied “because I want to”
After few days, she received a phone call from the recruiter of Partners in Health. The girl on the other side of the phone told her that they are sending her to West Africa instead of Sierra Leona. They need health workers to reconstruct the medical system of that region. However, she still has the option of Sierra Leona. Everything is completely up to her.
Since Last year, around 1,300 people applied through Partners in Health. Unfortunately, majority of the candidates refused to go when the epidemic hit the entire Africa.
Hence, the global health organization chose 360 people. The selection board explains that they want modest and humble people for this work.
