Butembo, North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo

Yvette Katungy (L) and Gentile Kahunia (R), two so-called 'lullaby singers' who are ebola survivors and therefore have a level of immunity, looking after 25-day-old twins at the Butembo Ebola creche.

Two of Gentile's four children, a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl, died of ebola. She says that being able to take care of other children fills her with pride now that she can no longer take care of her own.

Yvette was infected with ebola by her brother, who died, along with four members of his family.
