During the Ebola outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) deployed staff to Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. During Christmas, 2014, CDC staff deployed to Sierra Leone received an outpouring of appreciation from elementary school children. The handmade cards, created by these school children, brought tears of joy to those deployed, who were away from their own families during the holidays.

Captured by CDC staffer, Rebecca Myers, this picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of Programs-International and People–International.
