Here's a little video about Dr Catherine Hamlin, an Australian who does an amazing job, working with women in need in Ethiopia. Oddly enough, I became aware of her work through a gift I received - a lovely big, lightweight beach towel made of Ethiopian cotton. The foundation sells the towels and other neat stuff through their website, with proceeds going to a very worthy cause.

South African friends, I'm really looking forward to being at this year's Lowveld Book Festival, at the Casterbridge Centre, White River, on August 19. I went to the first one last year and it was great. Come join us for a great weekend in the lovely Lowveld!
