Mama Mikes & the World Bank

Money, food, transport have been in short supply in many rural areas affected by the violence. Equally crippling has been the lack of communication capability where there has been no electricity (poles brought down/lines cut) or shops (closed/looted/overpriced) selling mobile phone airtime.

People in urban areas have been sending airtime up-country by the thousands to stranded friends and relatives, while others from overseas (and even within Kenya) have turned to Mamamikes – who apologize for some logistcial delays and problems that may have been experienced in the transfer process.

Good Post banks. I hear they are making a killing.

Yes, I imagine Mamamikes is doing well from this.
