When the Ebola virus struck Liberia, Josephine Dolley was living with her family in the capital city of Monrovia. Within weeks, she had lost almost everything and everyone, but somehow, not hope. Editor’s note: An earlier version of this video stated that the local NGO would pay Josephine Dolley $25 USD a month as a social mobilizer. The video has been changed to remove that statement and include information from the NGO stating that it initially offered Dolley a job that paid $50 USD a month rather than the $25 USD Dolley says she was offered by the local recruiter working with the NGO.
