 Lying on the ground, their health condition was  serious. But there was solidarity with the people of Liberia when they faced the deadly virus, Ebola.

Among those who  decided voluntarily to help the inhabitants of Liberia who were facing the Ebola epidemic was also the Albanian doctor Lul Raka, the only volunteer of the Balkans.

Four years later, the Kosovar epidemiologist and microbiology specialist showed that the danger was great, but he decided to go to Liberia.




"There is no more dangerous diseases than the Ebola virus, carried with directly contact; the most vulnerable are the workers," he said.

Raka shows of what is the biggest challenge he faced.

"The strike in the middle of the epidemic, at its peak has been a strike; there has been close to 200 patients. And because of the strike there was chaos, there were dead bodies."

The hospitals of Liberia were on strike, and the medical staff was limited.

For 4.7 million people, there were only 28 doctors.

But they also were at risk.

"A large number of health workers have been affected, 1050 people died ... I have been there for two months."

Although the support of his relatives was missing, He decided to go. But his return to his homeland was also challenging.

Lul Raka was also a doctor during the Kosovo War.

He experienced a sense of responsibility of the help of NATO to Kosovo, thus in 2014 he decided to help NATO in another way: He came to the aid of the affected by Ebola virus in Liberia.
