Wheelbarrow men get a meal during coronavirus lockdown



Over half of the profits of Africa Imports go to help people with needs in Africa. Wheelbarrow men normally move things between stores and customers in the markets. During this coronavirus lockdown, there was a group of 20 of these wheelbarrow men in Zambia with no work because very few people are buying in bulk. Most of these men have families they support. Lately, they come to work hungry and go home hungry. We were able to buy them all lunch at a restaurant. These often are forgotten people who do not receive gifts this way. They were very thankful.

Africa Imports has the largest selection of African and afrocentric products in the US. You can visit us here.
