Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

Humanity is brotherly love

Broken, destroyed, ransacked were the first words that came to my my mind when I landed in Liberia. In the aftermath of the bloody civil war, everything needed to be fixed. But the spirits of its people were so high, their desire to build again, to live again, to start it all over was so impressive. This is the picture that sums it all to me:

In 2007, Liberia was still bearing the wounds of its long civil war.  But just like snow drops, the those kids’ contagious laughs echoed a new era of love and faith in humanity.

      Thanks so much Lia 🙂 On Sundays, after a long week of work in the field, I used to wander in the streets of Monrovia. Seeing those kids playing, laughing among all the destructions would always fill my heart with optimism and their laughters were so contagious. They are the best batteries charger !
