Meliandou village, nestled in the hills, appears so picturesque and safe. GoogleEarth view
Just outside of Meliandou is a grave marked only by stones. It is the last resting place of a two-year-old boy named Emile Ouamouno.
The vegetation grows quickly since December 28, 2013 when Emile died.
Two years earlier here is baby Emile in his father’s arms; they all appear content with their new role in life.
Here is the Ouamouno family when Emile is about two, shortly before he caught Ebola.
The babies in Meliandou are like babies everywhere and they put things in their mouths. The probable source of Ebola is a fruit bat guano.
The main path into Meliandou village (at 8.6224 -10.0649) shows a wonderful place to live a basic lifestyle. Click picture and see 21 people living there, and two sheep.
The list of fatalities in the first few months of Ebola.
Etienne Ouamouno, Emile’s father, lives on without his two children, his wife and her mother, all taken by Ebola.
All of these photos were clipped from a movie provided by UNifeed and created by the UN’s Department of Public Information and UNICEF. They are free for news purposes when their source is quoted. I cleaned and adjusted them for better visibility.
