Annemarie Boks

Annemarie works in DR Congo as a Director of an Aids Awareness Program established by the CECA 20 (Communauté Evangélique au Centre de l’Afrique) church. “Last year in August an ebola epidemic started near Beni in the North Kivu Province. Since then 2.275 have been confirmed as having ebola, and 1.598 have died (as of July 3). Ebola is spreading because the fight against ebola knows lots of problems. The region where it started is a region that is invested with rebel groups and these groups even have attacked treatment centers and killed aid workers. Also they make people believe that ebola does not exist and that it is a dream of the government to suppress the people. Since last weekend, the end of June, a woman has been diagnosed with ebola in Ariwara, only 45 km from Adi, and has died since. And it is worse. A team of ISTM, a school to train registered nurses in Aru, has been in Ariwara, to supervise students, before coming to Adi. We are waiting for vaccines.”
