For this month’s podcast, we’re referring to a YALI Voices Podcast, recently recorded from our very own Potter Studio at James Madison’s Montpelier.

When he was in high school, YALI 2017 Fellow Emmanuel Agumah was diagnosed with Buruli ulcer. The disease kept him hospitalized for approximately three years. Now, Emmanuel is Founder of the Buruli Ulcer Victims Aid Foundation, working to give back to victims who have suffered from Buruli ulcer.

In this YALI Voices podcast, Agumah shares his story with another YALI 2017 Fellow Rebecca Ojedele. Rebecca is project coordinator at the African Radio Drama Association, where she has written and produced over 15 different radio programs, several short videos and documentaries, and a toolkit app on various health, social and developmental issues.
