Liberia has officially re-opened its border with Sierra Leone following a drop in new Ebola infections.

The drop, which is now at one tenth of the level it was when the disease was at its peak, has also seen the lifting of curfews across Liberia.

Children have been greatly affected by the outbreak with up to 11,000 children in West Africa having lost one or both parents to Ebola. The high levels of stigma of Ebola survivors has led some children to beg on the streets or turn to prostitution.

Since the outbreak began early last year, over 9,300 people have been killed.
