While here, the team visited various sites and places throughout the week. They met with schools, an AIDS treatment facility, an organization that works with young men, a hospital, and other sites where future social workers will be needed and where hopefully we will be able to place our practicum students.
Enjoy the following images—most taken by our visitors.
On Saturday, we visited an area called West Point-- concentrated population, high poverty. It is also the home of a very active fishing enterprise.
The fish are delivered from the boats here...
Joseph, my Liberian counterpart at MPCHS made sure he grabbed a bunch on the smoker for a quick lunch.
Some of the fish, like these large yellow tail, get purchased to sell in area markets.
Back to the office: the team meets with the officers of the National Association of Liberian Social Workers.
On Sunday, the Reeds hosted the team at our house. Here Dr. Hugan plays grampa to little "Rae-Rae" Renita Reeves.
One of the local papers, the Inquirer, gave us this write up.
