Someone asked me recently how I thought Africans were responding to the Kony2012 video, since I am in Liberia. I was at a loss for explaining how invisible Kony still is in Liberia, despite the global viral whatnot. There's a clamor to get Kony captured to stand trial; this is a country still waiting to see what the verdict of international tribunals might mean, about a leader far more people know -- and many here still care about.
Anyway, here's a quick post from the Todee, Liberia, where I spent the day with journalist Mae Azango and several trained traditional midwives. They know something I bet most of us don't: how to get a woman in labor to a local clinic, more than an hour away by foot, when no one owns a car.
RSS/email readers, if you see this, could you let me know? I heard there was a problem... just drop me a comment if this hits your inbox. Thanks!
