I forgot to pick up the photos this afternoon and am not sure if the Walgreens (downtown Chicago) is open this weekend, but I'll find out. Once I have them, I will scan and post them as well as more stories about what's been happening in the camp lately this weekend.categories: Ghana Africa Humanist Movement
The donations to the tip jar malaria campaign in liberian refugee camp in ghana totalled to $290.
|Western Union fees||-34.00|
|transfered to Ghana||-250.00|
|from Ted's pocket||4.91|
The US$250 became 2,233,750 cedis in Ghana.
Here's how they spent it:

- The spray tank and insecticide are used to spray for mosquitoes. This is not the most cost effective way of combatting malaria (that would be insecticide-treated bed-nets), but it is an effective recruiting tool because people in the community see something being done and then want to get involved.
- A file is for keeping tools sharp.
- I believe a chapper is a long type of cutlass for cutting brush.
- Paint cup, plywood and plank are for making sign-boards publicizing campaign as well as prohibitting dumping in certain areas.
