Exhibit Title: Mokpangumba, our village, our home.

Location: Moyamba, Sierra Leone

Caption: The only way to Mokpangumba is by dugout canoe and then a 2 mile walk through the bush. The village was deliberately founded in this isolated spot more than two centuries ago to try and protect the people from slave raiders. Unfortunately, during the civil war the river proved a less effective barrier and rebels twice crossed over to attack.
