Josh Mcdade  Reports from Bougainville

One Week in Buka
Starting Monday 20 Sep 99, I may not have e-mail access as I'm going on a transfer with another medic from the town of Buka on Buka Island. I will be there for one week.

Will be visiting the world travelling Christian book ship MV Doulos at Kieta Warf tomorrow. Also, will be attempting to visit the "zero" memorial as well which is on the way to the warf.

Also, Tuesday 21 September 1999 is World Peace Day. A large number of activities have been organised at Arawa including a combined church service, sporting activities, release of a peace tape and clean up of Arawa Hospital. A large section of the Arawa Hospital was burnt and destroyed during the crisis a number of years ago.
