Baby 1, Ebola 0 The last known Ebola case in Guinea, Nubia, a 3-week-old baby, is carried to her family on Nov. 18 outside a Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) Ebola Clinic, which successfully treated her. Ebola is one of the world’s most deadly diseases, and Doctors Without Borders helped contain the epidemic in 2014 and 2015. Doctors Without Borders will receive the 2016 Lions Humanitarian Award in June at the 99th international convention in Fukuoka, Japan. (See convention story on page 40.) Photo by Tommy Trenchard Sweet Dream Art is open to interpretation, but Yumo Zhu, 12, of China, seems to suggest that, like a cake oozing with delights, peace is a sweet deal—that comes with cherries on top. In any case, Yumo was named the grand prize winner of the 2015-16 Lions International Peace Poster Contest. The contest’s theme was “Share Peace.” Yumo will be honored in June at the 99th International Convention in Fukuoka, Japan. (See the convention story on page 40.) The theme of the 2016-17 contest is “A Celebration of Peace.” Students ages 11, 12 or 13 on Nov. 15 are eligible to participate. For more than 25 years, millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest, sponsored by Lions clubs at schools and youth groups. For more details visit lionsclubs.org.
