WEDNESDAY WANDERLUST: MALAWI
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 3/27/19
This weeks edition of Wednesday Wanderlust takes us to Malawi. A place currently dealing with awful conditions. So far over 700 are dead because of Cyclone Idai and its related flooding, adversely impacting nearly 3 million people.
In truth I had scheduled this Wednesday Wanderlust because I learned recently that Malawi is the only country to issue currency that features an overland vehicle, The mighty Land Rover Defender. It is displayed on the 50 kwatcha, which is about $4.11 US.
However, as the events in Malawi have been unfolding the last week, I thought this was also a great opportunity to shine some light on ways people can help those effected there.
You can follow this link to learn about the different organizations who are helping and decide for yourself if one of them seems like a cause you’d like to support. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/world/how-to-help-cyclone-victims-in-mozambique-malawi-and-zimbabwe
In the spirit of Wednesday Wanderlust please also enjoy this overland video from The Road Choose Me called Malawi and Tanzania by Jeep.
