A key part of our work with communities in Sierra Leone affected by Ebola is an ambulance transportation project. We run a fleet of 30 ambulances and 15 decontamination vehicles. The aim of the project is to transport people with Ebola to treatment centres in a safe way that reduces the risk of infection to others. Having recently returned from Sierra Leone, Antoine Caquot talks about the project and his admiration for the brave and committed local staff.
