Our favourite way to help others.
In the past we’ve mainly helped people in agriculture, but tonight, when I saw Tohir poised seductively over his keys with his Brian Ferry hair, I was smitten. What the world needs is more of this grass roots music. Especially in Tajikstan.
(Actually musical needs in Tajikstan, and for that matter the world, may differ).
This month all our family’s Kiva loans will be directed to the people of the Philippines, after the country was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. It isn’t much, but it’s something, and hopefully will go some way towards not only helping these wonderful people get back on their feet, but also to show them they aren’t alone and there are people in other countries who see their plight and care enough to do something.
