Hi I am Dorothy
I am a retired GP and a Quaker. I live in Keswick one of the most beautiful places in the UK. I am married to Donald and we have two grown up children but now at nearly 70 I am off on a new adventure. Who would have thought that my adventure would be to travel to Sierra Leone to open wells?
I have been involved with a Quaker Charity Quaker Peace Networks West Africa for about three years now. I have been shocked by some of the pictures coming out of Sierra Leone and wanted to help. Keswick Quakers and others have donated money.
I will be travelling to Sierra leone on the 1st April to work for Quaker Peace Networks West Africa. QPNWA.

We have been able to dig new wells at a place called Rokel which is about 12 miles from Freetown. I will be opening one of the wells while I am there. ... read more
