A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on 25 April killing many thousands of men, women and children. Plan International is responding to the disaster to help protect children, meeting their immediate and long-term needs
These films follow events during the West Africa Ebola outbreak since it was first confirmed by the World Health Organisation on 23 March 2014.
By the 1 year anniversary of the Ebola outbreak, the death toll has risen to over 10,000 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. But the impact of the emergency has gone far beyond health and has affected all levels of society and the economy in West Africa.
Plan International has been on the ground responding to the emergency since the first cases were confirmed. The Ebola outbreak peaked during the last quarter of 2014. With intensive efforts involving national governments, UN and international agencies and donor nations, the number of cases have begun to slow down across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. But it's not over yet and significant dangers remain.
The videos in this playlist appear in the order they were made over time (with the most recent first) and show the effects of the disaster on children, families, communities and the health workers fighting the disease.
• Ebola Warriors, Ebola Food Sellers and Ebola orphans were shot at the height of the outbreak in late September, early October. • The Youth Voices films feature the voices of young people from West Africa who blogged for Plan about the impact of Ebola on them, such as the closing of schools, early pregnancy among girls and the stigmatisation of orphans and Ebola sufferers. • The Care Centre Blog follows a 2015 visit to a Community Care Centre, one of the key interventions supporting the fight against Ebola.
