CUSO-VSO 50th Anniversary, Susan Evans, Served in Congo 1969-72, Podcast #218

Susan Evans went to the Congo in 1969 as an English teacher with SUCO - the Canadian francophone branch of CUSO-SUCO at the time. She extended her stay and worked with women's groups in rural areas of the Congo that had been affected by the 1960 - 1967 civil war.

Susan has continued to be active in development and humanitarian issues ever since. She is now a part of the 'Seeds for Malawi' project started by former CUSO-VSO volunteers and sponsored by the Salt Spring Island Garden Club. The project helps families dealing with AIDS in rural Malawi. To find out more information about this project please visit:

Susan spoke with Mark Manns, a CUSO-VSO volunteer, at the 50th Anniversary event at UBC on December 4, 2010.
