Blog 7 - Beth and Lara
After a trip to the market, we are now on strict Nutella and squash rations. Despite the humid air, we have made great progress on the playground and now all the equipment is in the ground ready to be bombarded by the children of Mwandika and Manjenje.
After another lunch of carbs and veg (nobodies complaining... Yet...) we were given the opportunity to visit people in their homes and find out more about how Malawians live.
This was tough on some as we were finding out the personal stories of those children we had been playing alongside for the past week. However we can all agree that it was important to break down these barriers.
Although it has been a tiring day for many, there were too many positives to list, for example the influence hospitals and charities like Joshua have on the villagers.
We are all looking forward to days of rest now, however we are really starting to see the positive impact we are making.
Lots of love,
Team Malawi X
PS a happy 18th birthday to Geo, but don't worry I (Lara) am not embarrassed by your comments. Try harder next time.
