First 25 minutes of tape shows refugees left at the seaport, while the big boat sails away. Some refugees are still waiting in long lines, waiting to be
registered and/ or helped out. Some refugees complain.
Others are getting settled in the back of open transportation trucks, where they are brought food and water by Red Cross field workers. Refugees drink and
eat with big appetite.
A young boy fills up a barrel with water.
Rest of tape shows girls that are athletic program organized by FAWE (Forum for African Women Educationalists) at what seems to be a stadium, getting ready
to have a race, participating in a competition. With a live DJ playing songs and a announcer, a crowd of locals is gathered around to watch the running competition and listen to music.
