Caring for children orphaned by Ebola or been exposed to the disease is a tricky business. These children have to be isolated for 21 days to ensure they’re not infected and to reduce the risk of transmission to others. These children still need motherly love and care and for that it takes a brave survivor to step up to the task. Survivors of Ebola become immune to the disease, allowing them to care for these children as their parents would.
Tesfaye Selidori, a 35-year-old man and a father of 10 children, is among the beneficiaries of World Vision’s coffee revitalization project in Kochere.

In 2008, I received skill training on modern agricultural practice at Fura Agriculture Research Center by the joint support of World Vision and the Government. In 2009, I received 2,500 high yielding organic coffee varieties from World Vision.” Consequently, both his productivity and income increased tremendously.

When record-breaking floods left tens of thousands of people homeless in Bosnia and Herzegovina, many public institutions were used as temporary shelters. These buildings, which were not designed to house hundreds of people, often suffered significant damage as a result. This is the story of one school that opened its doors to more than 200 people and as a result was at risk of not being able to start school on time. Thanks to restorations from World Vision and support by United Kingdom, the school was restored and classes started on time.
