- First and last visits to Bo
Five visitors from One World Link went to Bo – 2 midwives, a health visitor, an OWL founder member, and a 13 year old. Jane Knight was the first visitor to Bo in 1981, when she invited the people of Bo District to form a friendship link. Helena is a local midwife who has trained many midwives and birth attendants in Sierra Leone.
The aim of this visit was to investigate possibilities of forming a Health link, starting with a base already consisting of friends at Yemoh Town Community Health Centre and Bo Children’s Hospital.
During the visit they discussed health and education with President Maada Bio of Sierra Leone.John Myers – 80 at 80Teachers visit Bo 2018
Three teacher visitors had their first time experience of working with their partner schools in Bo. They taught classes of 60 pupils or more and ran workshops for their brother and sister teachers in Bo. As always this was a period of hard work but all agreed that it was very moving and would jump at the opportunity to repeat the experience. They were given a warm welcome and made many friends. You can see their video of the experience.
