Donor statement - "1x Sachet with 2x porous sealed bag of herbal mosquito repellent. Item was gift to donor from member of the Chinese Military Team who worked as part of the international effort to counter Ebola in Sierra Leone (Operation Gritrock)
Chinese Military had hospital, 40 Bed Ebola Holding Unit, which was opened before the British military arrived in Sierra Leone. Chinese had built the hospital in 2011/12 in Freetown but it had never really opened. The Chinese were convinced to open it to help respond to Ebola. Chinese military sent personnel to set up the Ebola Unit. Due to communication difficulties and not being very well keyed in they need a bit of help so KSLP went over several times until a member of KSLP was able to charm one of the female Chinese Officers and they gave the KSLP a series of gifts including a Chinese military camouflage sunhat, packs of herbal mosquito repellent in silk sachet, black baseball cap with People's Liberation Army's insignia red star
Donor used the mosquito repellent in his accommodation "it seemed to work".
Sachet comprising two porous sealed bags of herbal mosquito repellent.
