This pandemic has caused a lot of plans to be altered, but it has not stopped Dignity:Liberia from moving forward in building House of Hope and Dignity. Board president, Kathi Gutierrez, and board member, Becky Mueller Huner, left for Liberia on February 3 in order to finalize the purchase of the land. They will make arrangements to clear the land and meet with an architect. There will be a ground-breaking ceremony which we’ll share with you at a future date. Kathi and Becky will, of course, visit the Phebe Rehabilitation Center as well. Oh, how I wish I could be there!
Although I am not physically in Liberia in February 2021, I am reliving my memories from February 2020. On that trip I also interviewed Emma Kennedy Katakpah, Clinical Coordinator for Fistula with Liberia’s Ministry of Health. Last April I posted part of her interview, in which she shared Survivor Success Stories. I thought you would enjoy hearing more of what she had to say as part of this month’s blog.
