Being tough: young Liberians’ coping strategies in refugee camps -
in refugee camps a vicious cycle of health hazards and the loss of livelihoods, social support networks and cultural traditions. The Buduburam Refugee Settlement in Ghana, set up to host Liberian refugees in 1990, is a classic example. - Koranteng Ofosu-Amaah

Is Ebola the ISIS of biological agents? Is Ebola the Boko Haram of AIDS? Is Ebola the al-Shabaab of dengue fever? Some say Ebola is the Milosevic of West Nile virus. Others say Ebola is the Ku Klux Klan of paper cuts. It’s obvious that Ebola is the MH370 of MH17.
