West Point, Liberia
West Point is one of the most densely populated slums in Liberia. The settlement is located on a peninsula, which empties in to the Atlantic Ocean. City officials estimate that the slum is home to around 75,000 people. The area lacks proper sanitation, and public utilities are either overwhelmed or completely lacking. Unfortunately, residents use the water front, which stretches around the area, as a lavatory, leading to a high rate of infectious diseases.
