everydayafrica Day 4 of documenting Post Ebola Liberia. We visited a crematorium where bodies of infected victims were cremated. The guys in this image are all Ebola survivors. The man in the middle (Lafeyette Vinton) lost his wife and two kids to the epidemic and they were cremated here. On the far left is Henry Tony who was an active ambulance driver during the time, who got sick but survived. He was one of the Ebola Fighters named Time Person of the Year in 2014. The Ebola crisis is over in Liberia, but the atmosphere here is one of strict precaution. Photo by @emekaokereke #monrovia #liberia #postebolaliberia #borderbeingproject #everydayliberia 2h

everydayafrica In Loving Memory. Yesterday, we visited one of the counties hard hit by Ebola. We met strong women, survivors of this dreadful epidemic. We also visited one of the ETUs(Ebola Treatment Unit). We then visited the cemetery. For every grave, date of birth is preceded by "sunrise" and date of death by "sunset". In life there is no night.photo by @emekaokereke #surfaceofthings #postebolaliberia #bongcounty #liberia 1d

everydayafrica Stars and solar street lamps light up Guinea Bissau's Bubaque Island at night. Bubaque has very little formal infrastructure, but solar lamps light some of the roads and mobile reception is relatively strong for an island miles off the coastline.

everydayafrica Deff Art finger-paints the old lighthouse whilst a crowd looks on, during the Chale Wote Festival in Accra.

True Love is a lot like a lighthouse. No matter how old it gets, it is the only thing that leads us home; that place of inner peace and contentment, where we feel accepted and loved without having to try.

Yes, the sea brings its adventures with it, much like life. But no matter how exhilarating or scary it gets, we always at some point, would want to go back home.

A lighthouse is stationary for a reason. It is immune to the times and seasons. True love is a lot like that.

I have watched many sailors stay out at sea for way too long, only to come home and see another ship has docked in their place, and they feel betrayed. In those situations, it wasn't the lighthouse that changed, it was the sailor who drifted. He for a moment enjoyed the sea so much he thought he was a fish.

True love is so steady, we all have a tendency to take it for granted. Don't make that mistake.

everydayafrica This is the Ministry of Defence Building. Its construction was cut short by the war. The huge expanse in front of the building was used as an Ebola Treatment Centre. Today people avoid this space like a plague. This is indicative of the stigma attached to the Ebola survivors. The Ebola epidemic is officially over in Liberia. But the stigma is ever present. The survivors are finding it hard to return to a life of normal social interactions with neighbours and friends in their communities.

everydayafrica A plus size model in a wedding dress rushes back stage to go and change at the Chale Wote Street Art Festival, Accra 2015.

African designers have been proudly showcasing plus size models for years because culturally, we consider them beautiful and sexy.

In fact sometimes it even gets carried too far, where in some communities young brides-to-be are locked up in a room and force-fed for months until they look plump.
