11 Year Old Boy Confirmed With Ebola Survives - Dancing All The Way [Watch Video]

Posted in: ,

11 year old Mamadee was a confirmed Ebola patient who used to cheer up himself and his fellow inmates by dancing daily to Azonto and Iyanya's Kukere music in the Ebola Treatment Center in Liberia. A few weeks after being admitted, he recovered.

Mamadee is an inspiration that no matter what you’re going through, a positive attitude can change your outlook and the outcome of your situation.

His sister, who was admitted with him, unfortunately passed away.

Below is a video of Mamadee dancing, and the description for the YouTube video, posted by Doctors Without Borders.

“In the area for Ebola-confirmed patients in the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Case Management Center in Foya, Liberia, roughly two-thirds of patients don’t survive the Ebola virus. The patients receiving treatment gather on wooden benches and plastic chairs if they have the strength. Other patients can only lie in bed while their immune systems try to fight the deadly virus in their bodies.

Mamadee, 11 years old, is different. As the other patients watch, he performs a dance to Azonto, a type of music that originated in Ghana, on the radio. He jumps, he ducks, he steps to the side, first left, then right, then left, then right, jumps again, turns, swings his hips and shakes his arms. He doesn’t stop, and he doesn’t get tired. It is difficult to believe, but Mamadee is an Ebola-confirmed patient.”
