Help at hand

The setting is Solwezi, a city in the north-west of Zambia, at 10am on an ordinary weekday. Solwezi is the capital of North-Western Province. The town has approximately 65,000 inhabitants. Most of the people living there are somehow connected to the copper mines. A mine worker is checking the fire extinguisher. What he doesn`t know is that the overpressure gauge is out of order and, sure enough, the whole things explodes, injuring his hand. This hand he needs in order to work, to get paid and to sustain his family. First aid is done by the local paramedics.

'It was raining in the morning so most of the sale was moved into the garage, front porch and under a tree. What we were selling was odds and ends, things that previous missionaries weren’t able to sell or move on before leaving the country. Over the years stuff has just accumulated here at FMZ.
