Ebola upsets, puzzles children in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Children in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are deeply distressed and puzzled by the Ebola outbreak that has produced 3,700 orphans, closed schools for millions and seen sports discouraged to avoid contact, a U.N. official said on Friday.

Sarah Crowe, crisis communications chief for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), returned to New York last week after spending more than a month in Liberia where she said the hemorrhagic fever has “hijacked every aspect of life.”
