A survivor of the deadly Ebola virus has lauded the administration of More Than Me for saving his life through the provision of its ambulance services that took him to the Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) after being diagnosed of the disease.
Bargalee Yokee, 21 who lost seven of his family members to the virus in the slum community of West Point walked into the offices of More Than Me to express his gratitude for being alive through the assistance of the More Than Me ambulance service.
Expressing his gratitude to the More Than Me team, Mr. Yokee said he is grateful to this NGO for its quick intervention to save his life, stressing, “If it wasn’t for the intervention of the More Than Me ambulance, I would have died along with the others,” he told the team at one of its regular Friday morning meetings.
More Than Me’s 24-hour ambulance service has supported communities in Monrovia and its environs through its call center, quickly picking up suspected victims of the virus and transferring them to the various ETUs in Monrovia for rapid treatment.
