Last week, Ben Walls caught up with Open Arms about his experiences both preparing for and partaking in Cycle Malawi.
The heat was the main challenge if I’m honest, although day 2 (3?) along the new / under construction road was hard as well! The optional extra cycle up to the Plateau in Zomba felt like a race against time (sunset) although I enjoyed the challenge. This was probably the most difficult part of the trip. It was hard going after a long day and with some time pressure. But at the same time, I also had a great sense of achievement once we got there.
Yes!! Beautiful country, incredibly friendly people (often running across fields just to wave), and a great sense of achievement raising money in the country where the funds are used.
It was great to be able to visit the two infant homes where most of the money raised is targeted.
