British nurse who caught Ebola in West Africa to return
Posted April 12
LONDON — A British nurse who contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone hopes to return to the West African country next month.
Pauline Cafferkey told BBC she plans a fundraising trip Sierra Leone, and says she hopes the trip will bring her "closure" after an extremely difficult experience.
The trip is being organized to raise money for Street Child, a British charity helping young people affected by the epidemic.
The 41-year-old Cafferkey was hospitalized in a specialty unit shortly after she returned to Britain from West Africa at the end of 2014. She has been hospitalized several times since then with complications linked to Ebola.
