Malawi in the news

My GOOGLE Reader has been providing me with some new through the BBC on Malawi. These articles leave much to be desired, but at least keep me updated. I thought I would share them with you and see what you think. As usual, I already have my opinions about how I feel, but am always interested to hear thoughts from others.

Madonna's organization is called Raising Malawi: an orphan care initiative

I will always be torn about what Madonna is doing in Malawi. I love her heart for the orphaned and forgotten. She sets a great example for many and raises ton of awareness for this little country I have come to love. However, I almost never agree with how she goes about her work while in Malawi. There always seems to be a catch, a sad story which has been pushed to the background and covered up with wads of cash. I guess I am thankful for what she has done, but more thankful that I am not the judge. What a relief!

  1. She could at least wear something that is long enough to be culturally appropriate!! I also have mixed feelings about this. Hmm.
