Liberia

 

I spent six months in 2010 conducting media training at The Heritage newspaper in Monrovia, Liberia through jhr, an organization supporting media training and rights media in several African countries. Among the initiatives we introduced was a series called “Where We Live” in The Heritage. It is a twice-weekly feature looking at community-level human rights issues.

A few examples:

Where We Live: On Peace Island: Squatter status leaves thousands without basic services

Where We Live: Desperate living conditions in densely-populated Doe Community

Where We Live: Huge hospital complex lies in ruin when thousands in Logan Town lack access to clinics

Where We Live: Too many people in too small a place– over-congestion plagues West Point and other communities

    Hi Chris,
    All the best to you & Em on your journey and with settling into Liberia.
    Lots of exciting things ahead to write about! We’re looking forward to hearing your updates. You must be tired from the long journey, and I hear it’s stinking hot there now. Quite the contrast, but I’m sure it won’t take long to get used to the many changes, I hope.
    Take good care of yourselves,
    love, Jen & Joe
