Slum Life in Sierra Leone ~ Another Entry in the Kroo Bay Diary

The BBC today published the latest entry in the diary compiled by the nurses and staff (pictured) at a clinic in Kroo Bay, a slum area of Freetown, Sierra Leone. The photo gallery gives further evidence of local life and their exceedingly challenging circumstances. We urgently need to accelerate prosperity so as to render all such scenes and slums everywhere a thing of the past. And let's also celebrate and revere the dedication and vitality of people -- such as these courageous clinicians -- who persevere beyond the problems of the present while caring for and aiding their fellow citizens.
