A Journey of Hope – The Bay Area to Sierra Leone
Last night’s 30 minute special “A Journey of Hope – The Bay Area to Sierra Leone” on ABC 7 news (KGO) took viewers to one of the most dangerous places on earth for mothers and young children to see the progress being made with help from the Bay Area and beyond. Including stories featuring World Vision, this show included the topics of maternal and child health, sponsorship, water and malaria.
Show synopsis (from the ABC website): “The West African nation of Sierra Leone was devastated by a brutal war marked by the struggle for blood diamonds and widespread atrocities. Today there is peace and a new focus on controlling malaria, malnutrition and a devastatingly high child mortality rate. The Bay Area is contributing to that effort by training physicians, spearheading ground breaking research, and contributing to the well-being of children and their communities.”
