The trip by Jeep from the small village near Luena to Malanje in Angola ,in Southwest Arica ,followed by a train ride to Luanda the capital , had taken seven hours. The drive from Luena was long and arduous due to unexploded land mines in the area, which required extreme diligence and caution to avoid as they drove.After forty years of conflict and civil war,the country was still ravaged and in desperate need of all the help outside sources could provide, which was why Ginny Carter had been there, sent by SoS Human Right.SoS/HR was a private foundation based in New York that sent human rights workers around the globe. Her assignments were usually two or three months long in any given location , occasionally longer. She was sent in as part of a support team , to address what-ever human rights issues were being violated or in question,typi-cally to assist women children , or even to address the most pressing physical needs in trouble spot somewhere ,like lacks of food, water, medicine, or shelter.
