Still on their quest to experience every country on the African continent, our team of intrepid adventurers makes it to their 3rd last country, Chad – a landlocked country in north-central Africa. Its neighbours are Niger, Libya, the Sudan, the Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Nigeria.

Dispatch #20: A never to be forgotten adventure

We’ll conduct further United Against Malaria and Rite to Sight work in area of Lake Chad – We’ll keep you posted.
