Not all volunteers that come to the medical center in Nalerigu are doctors or medical staff. Kathy is a music teacher who came to Ghana for one month with her daughter (who was doing medical work). So what did Kathy do for one month while her daughter worked long hours at the hospital? Sit around […]
I confess, my title has been sensationalized a bit. The water at the river does run rapidly over rocks, but it is only white because of the soap used by the women washing their clothes in it.
