Independence Day at the Chukuma Johnson Library

Monday 27th April marked the 54th Independence Day celebrations in Sierra Leone.

At the Chukuma Johnson Memorial Children’s Library, Rosetta and our team organised a small party for the Ebola orphans. The children learnt about independence from Mr Julius Fisher who also explained the significance of the colours of the national flag: Green for natural vegetation, White for peace and Blue for the ocean.

But it was a party so there was singing and dancing and some food and more singing and dancing, as it should be!

Happy Independence Day to al our friends in Sierra Leone. With the schools now back and the Ebola rates continuing to fall, it does seem that there is much to celebrate!

The CODEP Team.
