An NHS volunteer from Wales is flying to Sierra Leone today to help fight Ebola.
Dr James Lavers is part of the first group of NHS volunteers to be deployed by the UK Government.
Mr Lavers, 37, works as an Intensive Care Registrar from Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.
He will complete a week of training before joining British-built Ebola treatment centres across the country.
Mr Lavers is part of a group that includes GPs, nurses, clinicians, and psychiatrists. They will be setting up procedures as well as diagnosing and treating people who have contracted the deadly virus.
Volunteers such as Mr Lavers have been praised for their bravery in choosing to travel to the worst affected areas.
The deployment of NHS volunteers is part of wider UK efforts to control, contain and defeat Ebola. So far the UK has committed £230 million to the response in Sierra Leone.
