EBOLA nurse Pauline Cafferkey is to return to the country where she caught the killer virus to aid children affected by the epidemic.
More than 11,000 people died in the crisis which gripped Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone from 2013-16.
Cafferkey’s case was diagnosed when she returned to Scotland after volunteering at a treatment centre in Sierra Leone’s Freetown in late 2014. She was discharged in January 2015 but was readmitted to hospital three times.
The 41-year-old Glasgow medic will return to Sierra Leone next month to aid Street Child, which is working to help young people impacted by Ebola.
