Photo of the Week: Hitching a ride in Liberia
On the road to Liberia‘s capital Monrovia, a boy wearing a pink motorcycle helmet scrambles to get on a truck as it pulls back onto the dirt road after bananas were loaded on the truck.
The photo was taken by Bruce Strong as part of Together Liberia, a platform for media development and Liberian storytellers using text, audio and visual media. Find out more here.
