First days in Freetown

A quick update from our intrepid travellers: all’s well and they’re fully briefed ahead of their schedule starting tomorrow.

Here are all of the gappers and the two group leaders outside of the CAFOD office in Freetown with Dennis Momoh, CAFOD programme communication administrator for the Mano River Region.

Gappers and group leaders at office

I hear that after a long day’s work, they have all just gone to the beach for a drink!  Sounds good to me.

The hard work starts tomorrow though as they travel to their respective destinations to experience a different perspective of Sierra Leone.

More to follow….
