Preparing Meals the Hard Way
Dedza, Malawi … It is one thing to observe. However, Suzi Stephens, Medical Director for the Malawi Project, is not one to remain an observer for long. In this case she got into the action of grinding maize by hand with a group of village women near Dedza, Malawi. She later indicated this is really hard work and a lot harder than one would imagine.
“The amount of work a village woman does just to give her family their next meal is hard to comprehend in western culture,” Stephens said. It gives me great respect for these women, and I would encourage women and women’s support groups to do all they can to help these women raise their families and accomplish their daily tasks.”
