SPOTLIGHT ON CARITAS-FREETOWN
We are happy to welcome Father Peter Konteh back to the U.S. Father Konteh, Executive Director of Caritas-Freetown and our partner in Sierra Leone, is in the U.S. to update our donors on the status of our programs and also to reach out to new supporters.
First on the agenda was briefing Congress and U.S. government agencies on our progress in Sierra Leone to establish the Charity Health Network. A highlight of our meetings was with Representative Chris Smith, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Human Rights, and International Organizations. We really appreciated his time and interest in the issues affecting Sierra Leone. He asked Father Peter to keep him updated on our work.
