Stuck in Little Liberia on SI

Prince Thompson worked at the Ministry of Health in Liberia and came to the U.S. for back surgery. While he was recovering, the Ebola outbreak began. Now he lives with his ex-brother in law in the projects on Staten Island, and his wife sends him money from Liberia to help out.

Listen to Prince’s story in this video prepared for Voices of NY by journalism students Carlien Bootsma and Nina van Oostrum of the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht.
