i have a friend from ghana who was a child during these years. he said the us peace corp were very nice people and treated them as equals. the peace corp did many projects that are still in place today. the brits were there at the same time and set up healthcare delivery system and yes they have a a form of universal healthcare. he also mentioned that the russians were there but no one really like them because they had "bad shoes". i never asked him what that meant but it must have been bad.
