Visit from Dutch journalist & photographer...

This impressive picture was taken outside of the clinic gate on a Monday morning, as the moms were waiting to come into the clinic with their sick children.

Early October we had the privilege of hosting (well-known) photographer, Robin Utrecht, as well as journalist, Anne van der Vliet, from Holland. Their aim was to report on the work that Mercy Ships is doing both here in Sierra Leone, as well as on the Africa Mercy in Liberia. While in Freetown, they were also able to cover amputee football, an African church and the Special Court.

I was impressed by Robin’s photography; more photos will be posted soon. It was also fun to hear that a number of the photos, as well as a brief story on my parents and me, appeared in multiple (14!) newspapers in The Netherlands. It’s not every day that you get a Facebook message from a friend saying they saw your picture in the local paper!
