Samuel Dabisie a young farmer and his wife Adama Dabisie, once lived in a small village called Nemgbema in Nywalenga chiefdom, southern province of Sierra Leone. They were happily married with three children- Wuya Dabisie(8yr), Ernest Dabisie(6) and Alice Dabisie(3yrs old), who are all yet to enter primary school. Samuel senior being a young energetic youth in the village was recommended by the community elders to be a pouter at the community health center in 2011. Zealous to explore his potentials, he decided to get training in basic health issues which empowered him to serve the health center in different capacities including nursing aid.
When Ebola hit the Sierra Leone in May 2014. Samuel sprang into action assisting doctors and health care professionals render services to victims and their families. However Samuel who was the primary bread winner contracted the virus while treating an Ebola patient at the health center. Samuel went home without taking precautions and only realized he was positive of Ebola when the patient he treated died and was tested positive. Samuel died few days later and his wife Adama was also tested positive. As God could have it, Adama survived and the children too were safe. Adama being a backyard gardener couldn’t take care of her three children and decided to take them to their aunt Nyawa Dabisie in Bo, Southern province of Sierra Leone. Nyawa a single parent with two children had no alternative than to accept her late brother’s children and help them with whatever little she had. Nyawa was struggling to support them until she finally came in contact with Maseray Kanu- Field Officer for CPSSL during her field visit. Maseray invited her and the children for an interview. Having gone through the interview process, the children wereenrolled in CPCSSL foster care program and have been receiving support for the past two years. CPCSSL is giving stipend to the foster parent and also looking after the schooling and medication of the children.
