My reporting of the Ebola virus outbreak in Liberia was recognised at the Amnesty International Media Awards last night, where I was handed the Gaby Rado Memorial Award.
The articles published in the Sunday Times, the Observer and the Independent on Sunday sought to highlight the broader impact of the disease on already impoverished communities.
The stories showed how people were dying not just from the virus itself, but from fear and as a result of the government and international community's inadequate response.
They also highlighted the vital role local NGOs played in the response, particularly charity Street Child.

The Independent Magazine - Displaced young adults are living in a graveyard in Liberia's capital Monrovia
I made two trips to Liberia to gather material for this exclusive story, which has never been reported before in the UK.
It was only possible with the help of charity Street Child which is supporting the young people living in the cemetery.
The pictures were taken by award-winning freelance photographer Hannah Maule-Ffinch.
