Photo of the week September 11th, 2013

It has been said that 'No man is an island'. The Volta Lake has many islands - but we must remember that, they were not all islands before the dam was built . What at times appears to be an 'isolated individual island' is still connected to the mainland by the lake floor. If the water levels rise, any of us can become an island. If the levels drop, we are quickly, visibly, connected by land. In the ebb and flow of life's challenges it is easy to see oneself isolated and island like. However, we are all connected and just need to reach out for others to join hands with us, reminding us that we rely more on our humanity than our individuality. Remember all the island dwellers in Ghana, and remember our connection to them. Photo courtesy of Medicine on the Move
