When I think of Mwandi I think of sand, sand and more sand. I also think of children, children and more children! These children are so blessed with the love and care of Fiona, Heather and their team at the OVC centre. To be a small part, of what I see as such a positive expression of faith, has been an absolute joy. The OVC centre in Mwandi is giving hope to a community riddled...
