The 4th year Social Work students at UTAS are supporting our peer, Flo Bannah, to return to his home country of Liberia. Flo, a final year Social Work student, arrived in Tasmania in 2007 and is returning to his home country for personal family reasons as well as to create an educational video of his journey to present to Community, Service Providers and Students on his return.
Flo wishes to capture the rebirth of a new nation emerging from one that was devastated by war. This will be a journey into the political , social, health and welfare realities of people’s lives. To assist his journey we are holding an event where we will hear from Flo and other Community members talk about the transition from life in Liberia to living in Tasmania.
