More growing families

January 7, 2016

I spent Saturday afternoon in Kwale 2 in Lilongwe visiting the Banda family. I have know them for 9 years and have loved watching their family grow. Things are difficult for this family right now. John has lost his business contract. He’s looking for business financing to operate a tricycle business so that he can support his family. Tricycles – three wheeled motorcycles with a cab in back – are the newest form of transportation in Malawi. They are cheaper than a taxi, but take you door to door unlike the minibuses.

I brought a doll for the children. And during my visit, it was quickly adopted by the young boy – very well cared for (carried on his back, wrapped in a cloth, shielded by the sun with an umbrella, bathed and covered with lotion).
