People who know me personally, also know my fascination for Africa….Maybe it is because my roots are calling me!
Four years ago, Hanaffan, who also shares this passion for Africa, took me to Mozambique. A land that we sincerely love.
Mozambique is an enchanting country, full of warm people and magic on the air. It is difficult to describe such a place with words; but something is clear: I always wanted to come back.
In Bilibiza, a remote and forgotten Mozambican village, there are so many needs as children, women and men. Here in China abound what for them is necessary and very difficult to access. Our heart‘s desire, is to help all the village someday, but at present we can only contribute with a tiny part.
Today, in collaboration with some of our students, with many of our colleagues and friends, and with a little effort on our part, we have managed to collect clothes for all ages and genders, toys, soccer balls, threads and needles, seeds and few medicines!
Yesterday, we had the task to organize everything by category and pack the first suitcase. We got everything in space saving bags, but there is still more clothes and another suitcase to be filled. All this plus our backpacks and equipment.
Now we need to be ready for the journey. We already know that once we leave home, heading to Africa, we are going to go up and down stairs. We are going to take a long distance train, some taxis, many buses for short and long distances. We will ride many cars and even walk along rural road; carrying all this luggage, in order to deliver it at the right place.
In the end, all will be worth it!!!
Any suggestion about what to bring for them?
