Many thanks to Thomas Cook!
TC have again granted us an extra 20kg of baggage allowance so we can start packing the baby clothes, the reading glasses (more needed!) the oddments of computer connections, the books, mobile 'phones (still more needed !), the medical supplies (we've got one blood pressure monitor; could use another), CDs of African music, pencils, crayons - oh, and as much spare money as you can afford! There are school fees waiting to be paid, medical expenses to be met, teachers wages to be paid, mosquito nets to be distributed ...
Laura and Lynne have both offered suitcases which we can load with the above goodies and then leave out in one of the villages for people to use as storage cupboards.
