Across Africa, laying a loved one to rest can be an event rivaled by none other. In some cases, funerals are more important than marriages and births, and no expense is spared. But as our Robyn Curnow discovered, even the simplest of funerals can put many families in difficult financial situations.
I followed the program,the cost of saying goodbye. Most Eritreans send bodies of loved ones back home from where ever they are. Real example, my cousin was a refugee in the US for 6 months and died on accident. It costed us arround 11,000usd for the storage and plane ticket for the dead body.I wish the is can be changed and instead help the family, but it is almost immpossible with the tradition.
Super blog. I enjoyed the site and when I have temtihe, shall visit the site again. Finding blogs thisgood on the internet.It may look like it was hard work, but my blog was simple.
I definitely have G.A.S.S. but also wrnneoidg if there's a maintenance issue or other issue today? Valentines' Day. February 14, 2009.I have 8 cents in revenue, same thing I had early this morning. And while that is very, very unlikely it could be true I suppose but my impressions have not changed since early this morning either and it's now 4 pm.I know I've had visitors because I've gotten emails from people who visited the site and because there have been no problems with my server. Also, google analytics shows visitors although that info is way down too.Any issues not reported yet under Known Issues?
