About Bankolay

Bankolay moved to study at the University of Makeni shortly before the Ebola quarantine was rolled out. As part of his work with Radar, he sent in a recording, ‘An Invisible War’, and he wrote about the material support given by the international community to Sierra Leone during the Ebola Crisis. Bankolay’s featured story is about the relationship he developed against all odds during the outbreak.
