In 2020, Madagascar made an herbal supplement, Covid Organics, free to its population, touted as a means to protect oneself from the worst of COVID-19.  I see in mid 2021, Madagascar is welcoming COVID-19 vaccinations for its citizens. Very glad for citizens of Madagascar. Ever hoping more access to English language education and more open government, but the vaccine is a huge start. Mora mora (slowly, slowly).

With famine, COVID-19, sapphire rushes and further threats to lemur habitat, I check in on Madagascar quarterly, ever hopeful. Madagascar is an island with so many wonders.  

Madagascar is on my mind…
