Overcoming Hardship: A Visitor’s Perspectives Of Life in Mali
Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world, and that’s exactly what I kept reminding myself when I visited the country with an Islamic Relief USA delegation earlier this year. But no matter how hard I tried to prep myself
mentally, there was nothing that could have prepared me for experiencing life without electricity and running water. It was a different lifestyle. Even the international airport in the country’s capital and most developed
city, Bamako, didn’t have running water in the airport’s only bathroom. And that was just the beginning.
