Bow down to Bilikisu

Introducing Connaught Hospital Ebola unit nurse, the beautiful Bilikisu Koroma. Her smile dazzles, her style is on the money and her story will make you want to bow down beneath her high-top clad feet.

IMG_3149Bilikisu’s experience of the Ebola ward has not only been as a nurse treating patients, it is where she spent 12 days battling the disease. Bilikisu lost 17 relatives to Ebola including her father, seven brothers and four sisters before she herself recovered along side her elder brother Jusif. Her grief is impossible to imagine and her resilience and optimism is beyond inspirational. “I have the skills and immunity to save lives, I wanted to come back to the ward and help people who were in my position, it is where I belong for now.”
