Last year, 38 members of Erison Turay's family died from the deadly Ebola virus, which has killed over 11,000 across West Africa. Erison founded the Ebola Survivor's Soccer Club, in his hometown of Kenema, Sierra Leone, as a support network for survivors and a means to battle negative stigmas in the community.
