This category contains photographs donated to Wikimedia Commons in 2016 by Roel Coutinho (on Dutch wikipedia), MD. These photographs were made by him in the course of his medical work in the liberated areas of Guinea-Bissau and in Senegal in 1973 and 1974 during the final years of the war of independence against the colonising power Portugal. The metadata for this collection were collected and organised by Michele Portatadino, MA African Studies, Leiden University. The photographs were digitized by GMS Digitaliseert in Alblasserdam. Hans Muller finalised the upload to Wikimedia Commons using the GLAMwiki Toolset. The project was led by Jos Damen and sponsored by the African Studies Centre, Leiden University.
