The Story of Decontee
These pictures were taking by one of the earliest survivors to join Playing To Live! as a volunteer caregiver, Decontee Davis. She was the lead caregiver at the ICC and she helped Jessi, PTL!'s co-founder train other volunteer caregivers. Decontee also contributed to the finalization of the activities with the Ministry of gender and the Ministry of health. She currently works with 20 children, including her son.
Decontee is also an Ebola survivor. At the height of the epidemic Doctors believed her blood could help provide others who were suffering from Ebola the ability to fight off the disease. She participated in an experimental trial in which she donated a pint of her blood to be used in an attempt to cure another patient interned with Ebola. The woman lived thanks to Decontee's donation. It is am incredible story of healing and faith.
We are grateful to have Decontee on our team of dedicated volunteer caregivers. She is helping us to bring healing and joy to the children of Liberia.
