Today the 7th of August some of Andiamo Trust workers gathered at the entrance of Nankhombe house to welcome Andrea Mandelli in his third trip to Malawi. He came along with his fiancée Veronica Canegrati.
At dinner, Kantema; as at the look of things- the ‘head of volunteer house’, in Fr. Mario’s chair, chit-chatted with Andrea in his little Italian vocabulary as he could. Andrea thanked everyone for yet another warm welcome to Balaka, mostly for the ‘takulandirani’ song the women chanted at the entry. Every time I am here I feel I am at my second home” says Andrea around happy faces.
“We surely will make the three weeks of your stay as memorable as possible” says the executive director of Andiamo Trust; Mr. A. Galeta in his welcoming remarks.
