#AceNewsServices – BRITAIN – October 10 – The Warwick district is playing a role in helping those caught up in the world’s biggest ever Ebola disasters.
‘Dr Paul Gully Joining WHO in Sierra Leone to fight EBOLA ‘
Not only will that involve help from here in Leamington Spa, but it will also include first hand aid from a former doctor.
Dr Paul Gully has volunteered to go into the epicentre of the Ebola crisis to see what he can do to help those.
So far, hundreds of thousands of people have died from Ebola, which has swept across countries in West Africa.
One of the countries most affected is Sierra Leone, where Leamington has enjoyed strong links during its 30-year partnership with the town of Bo through the One World Link (OWL).
One of the OWL’s founder members back in the early eighties was Dr Gully, who brought up his young family in Farley Street, Leamington Spa.
Now it has emerged that he has volunteered to the country’s captial city, Freetown, as a field co-ordinator for the World Health Organisation.
As the Courier went to press, Dr Gully was due to land in Sierra Leone.
