Up To 10,000 Ebola Orphans Face Stigma In West Africa

New York Times: An Ebola Orphan’s Plea in Africa: ‘Do You Want Me?’
“…Ebola has been wretched for children. More than 3,500 have been infected and at least 1,200 have died, United Nations officials estimate. … The United Nations Children’s Fund, or UNICEF, says that across the region there may be 10,000 [children orphaned by Ebola]. Many are stigmatized and shunned by their own communities…” (Gettleman, 12/13).
