I am looking for a friend that served in Zaire between 85-88.

Her name is Angela Sweeney. Does anybody know/remember her, or could you tell me how to find her e-mail address.

Hi there.

I was working for De Beers (Sediza) in Zaire during the period you mentioned and think the name "Angela Sweeney" may ring a bell with me. One of my old colleagues married an American girl who was in the Peace Corps, and I have a feeling it was the Angela you mentioned. I'll look into it and if it's possibly the same one I'll try and put you in touch.

By the same token, did you know a Peace Corps girl called Jenny Hirsch who was working up in the Kasai's on a fish project i think. Probably at Mwene Ditu?

Best wishes

- I would like to hear from some former peace corps senior staff members (Dick Wall, Bruce Cohen, Lynda Gray, Cheryl Barton, Gary Steele, Dr Jones Bev, Tom Wayman, Brian and Robin Stiw..., Ruthy Deer, and the others).
I worked for Peace Corps in Kinshasa, 1984 - 1988, as Program Assistant, Programming and Training Office.

Hi! I am a physician and am considering going to Kinshasa to work for one month in Feb/March. My family is concerned about the political situation there and very worried for my safety. I would love to hear from anyone who is there or who has been there recently. I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you!
