Survivor Association Empowers Members through Support Groups and Adult Literacy Classes

Glenna Beckley, Finance Officer of the Sierra Leone Association of Ebola Survivors (SLAES), joined SLAES to advocate for the needs of Ebola survivors like herself as many survivors lost their employment because of health issues and stigmatization. With help from Advancing Partners and Partners in Health, SLAES offers survivor-to-survivor support groups and adult literacy classes that can help survivors regain their livelihoods in the aftermath of Ebola.
