    One thought on “Kamakwie: Finding Peace, Love, and Injustice in Sierra Leone”

    1. An excellent chronicle of several weeks the author spent in a Sierra Leone village She offers a wonderfully intimate portrait of the people who live there their hardships, their hopes and ambitions, and their psychological and physical scars from civil war An insightful window into the everyday lives of people in a developing nation Abundantly illustrated with color photographs.

    2. A good introduction to some of the challenges of living in Sierre Leone after the civil war Wonderful work they are doing, but I couldn t help but be a little dismayed by the sense of the Canadians coming to the rescue of the people of Sierre Leone, not a true partnership.
