Handle With Care

Published November 30th, 2012

Passengers of the Chauncy Maples, built in 1898 and dubbed the oldest passenger ship still afloat in Africa, load and unload goods - and a kid - from one of the lifeboats used for transhipments in the points of the coast where there are no harbors. Since last summer, the Chauncy Maples has returned to port: after more than 100 years of service, she had become too fragile. Her journey, however, is not over: a UK Charity is raising £2m to renovate the ship as a floating clinic, which will bring primary health care to half a million people - among the poorest in the world - living around the lake (Source).
