Thousands Break Ebola Quarantine to Find Food

Thousands Break Ebola Quarantine to Find Food

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — A group of aid agencies says that thousands of people in Sierra Leone are being forced to violate Ebola quarantines to find food because deliveries are not reaching them.

In order to prevent the spread of Ebola, large swaths of the West African country have been sealed off and within those areas many people have been ordered to stay in their homes. The government, with help from the U.N.’s World Food Program, is tasked with delivering food and other services to those people.

But Jeanne Kamara of Christian Aid in Sierra Leone said Tuesday that there are many “nooks and crannies” in the country that are being missed. Her agency and others that belong to the Disasters Emergency Committee umbrella organization are trying to fill the gaps.
