Malawi is one of the poorest and most densely populated countries in the world and as such, it’s often the object of charitable works from good souls in the Western world and whether this is a good thing or not, it at least puts the country and its needy people in the spotlight and prevents them from being swept under the carpet. It’s often hard to know how to help people abroad when you can’t send basic items such as food, liquids or prescription medicines using a courier service and that’s why it’s important to focus on the little things you can do to help.
Being based in a developed country such as the UK means you are in a privileged position to be able to help those living in developing countries and that includes those people are out in countries like Malawi trying to help those in need. International shipping these days is such that sending parcels to Malawi is as easy as sending parcels to a destination within your own country and this means that if you can’t travel to far flung countries yourself, you can at least keep in touch with something a little more tangible than an email.
Keeping those charity workers inspired to do what they do is as important as being out there doing it yourself and worldwide shipping allows you to send books, magazines, clothes, writing materials and anything else you think they might consider to be a little piece of home.
Think of all the little things you take for granted each day, all those little luxuries and you’d probably find that the majority of them are not available in Malawi, everything from the humble sandwich to the latest tabloid paper or gossip magazine.
And while you can’t send a person a sandwich, or even the ingredients to make one, you can send them other things such as jewellery making tools, knitting and sewing materials and art materials (but no liquids!) which will not only give the person you know something to focus on but also something that they can use to run classes, social events and give people hobbies. These sorts of things bring joy and stimulation to many of us each day and they provide ways to pass the time, meet new people and learn new skills and that’s why parcel delivery to Malawi is so important. Couriers to Malawi can deliver little bits of hope, development and joy as long as you take the time to package it up and put the order in.
Do your charity work from home, by using the leading world couriers, either to those less fortunate than you or to those people out there to help and as long as you use specialist Malawi courier services it won’t cost you a fortune.
