Shoprite Car Park Mzuzu

A chaotic summary of thoughts

...unlike the parking lot at Shoprite Mall, Mzuzu! Yup. Malawi. Not what I expected but what I believe should be told as well... Before I came here I had this "image" in my mind... Houses with straw roofs and no access to water and no cars

This is November 2018

31st October 2018: It is hard to believe that this can be happening in our Rich, Globalised World, well into the 21st Century. That a Tiny, Irish, Voluntary organisation is the only one to help, despite millions of all world currencies being handed to Malawi, all-day, everyday. It
