article imagePictorial presentation of Dr. Eni's activities in Sierra Leone Special

A couple of days ago I submitted a report on the activities in southern Sierra Leone of Dr. Godwin Eni, a Vancouver based public health specialist. Here are some photos of Dr. Eni doing presentations.
He attended meetings and took part in public health campaigns in Bo, Sierra Leone's second largest city and its environs. Eni, who arrived in the country December 2011, has already travelled in many parts of the Bo district, one of the largest districts in Sierra Leone.
Sierra Leone, very rich in diamonds, iron ore and other minerals, endured 11 years of a brutal civil war (1991-2002), faces many problems in all sectors with health needing the most urgent attention for a cash-strapped government and donor-driven economy.
Many professionals including doctors, nurses, lab technicians and even trained midwives left the country in droves during the war and have settled in other countries and are finding it difficult to return home and start all over again. A small number are however returning, in trickles.
As a young man, Dr. Eni, of Nigerian origins, left his native country of Nigeria during the turbulent 60s to study in Canada where he built a successful career. But he has never forgotten Africa. He has been all over the continent including his native Nigeria. Now he is in Sierra Leone.
