"Living on the KOP helps you to realize how little you actually need and what you are capable of doing without. They wanted us, as females, to come out to the KOP to encourage the women and children of the area to come to the medical clinic for aid.


At first we had very few kids coming to the KOP for medical assistance. After only a short while more kids came for medical assistance because they were not as afraid of us (female soldiers)."
