Friends of Pakati – lockdown doesn’t stop life going on…

Here are some of the things going on in lockdown in various places…

As reported recently in the post https://friendsofpakati.com/2020/04/05/corona-lockdowns-how-some-friends-of-pakati-are-coping-wherever-they-are/ my son Daniel helped me out…

So it seems I am not the only one having haircuts at home…

Some get busy with other things too…

Others choose to keep fit….

Some, like the Author, are still losong weight – now over 10kg in 12 weeks😁👍🏽

Some are looking after young relatives…

Others seem blissfully ignorant of what is happening in the world…

While some just love eating…

There is much more to come in the next few days here on Friends of Pakati! I am preparing a story about two people who are supporters of the blog, contrasting their current situations. Another story is waiting for further personal information to complete a profile of a former Pakati student with a difference… in addition I am gathering more details from 2 or 3 other potential profiles. Also I intend to put together a post about local efforts in Zimbabwe to alleviate the sitiation there.
