Moving the World: help, and hope, for Malawi
This summer, eight North Country women traveled to Malawi, a landlocked former British colony in east Africa. Malawi ranks as the poorest country in the world. It's also among the most densely populatedl, and the economy mostly based in agriculture. The North Country women, from Canton and Watertown churches, brought donated medical supplies, eyeglasses, soccer balls. They were invited into peoples' homes and visited schools and medical clinics. The Canton group was led by Linda Potter, who joined Martha Foley and Todd Moe in the studio.
