Come learn about peacemaking that transcends borders and heals communities! In 2015, Alpha Umarr Barrie traveled to his home country of Sierra Leone with Mediators Beyond Borders to facilitate reconciliation circles between ebola survivors and community members who were hesitant to welcome them back (with enormous impact). After seeing the many needs survivors have, Alpha plans to continue this reconciliation work while also providing survivors with school tuition, job training, and other opportunities.
Here’s an incredibly moving video about the reconciliation work & the impact it had! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rEOU0NSHZ-8
