After visiting the missionaries we continued on to the VOA Refugee Camp with the Humanitarian couple Elder and Sister Miles. They have been building wells and latrines at the camp - see news article in previous post. There are about 30,000 refugees in the camp. They are mostly Muslim and from the civil war in Sierra Leone. Even though the war ended 5 years ago the camp is still there. We questioned why they have not returned now there is peace. They have no family there as many where killed during the war, their homes destroyed. There is nothing to go back to.
