This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

A fire truck for Monrovia


Our Canadian friends from Buchanen Renewable Energies have donated an ex-British Army fire truck and fire-fighting equipment to the Port of Monrovia's Fire Department, which has had absolutely no equipment since it was looted during the fighting of 2003. The Africa Mercy has also donated a number of fire extinguishers, and I am hoping that we will do some joint exercises as part of our Fire Team Training. Pictured is Calvin from BRE and the Port's Fire Department during a training exercise today. Olly
