My cry of heart for Côté d’Ivoire – Préface Georges Alula
Lou Amanan Hélène Dandi
This book features the testimony of a humanitarian worker who witnessed the aftermaths of war : Dandi Lou saw danger coming and tried to thwart it from exploding in Côté d’Ivoire, preaching peace to all the politicial leaders of her country and those who claimed to be heirs of late President Houphouet-Boigny. Yet, it did not save the country from burning since these leaders found nothing better than make fun of her. Called « the cry baby », she decided to write this book to yearn for peace and a renewed and united country, land of opportunities and welfare for all the Ivorian people.
