PATRICIA GBAYLEE: E186-DUA

2016: RECIPIENT: Patricia Gbaylee - Age 39

EMPOWERED BY: Amy Waefler Graber and Mandy Varda

Patricia Gbaylee is a 39 years old mother of six. She was a fish seller in the community until the Ebola hit Liberia. One of her immediate neighbor had died of Ebola, therefore, the entire neighborhood was on a mandatory lock down. Her business money was what the family was using for survival. Patricia told me, "Old Ma, the Ebola break my business down to nothing... it broke me down to nothing. I can't find my way out. My son George, he cripple. He can try to help me, but look at his foot...". Her 16 year old son, was born without toes. These are photos of Patricia Gbaylee receiving her new supply of selling goods to now be able to successfully re-start her very own business. This was made possible by the donations from Amy Waefler Graber and Mandy Varda.
