UN to update website on Malawi

Best Blogger Tips
Good news! Received email today from UN to confirm that they are now updating their website.

Dear Mr Paul Marsden,
Thank you for your email and interest in the UN work and the UN Malawi website. We are currently working on updating the website and hopefully you will see the fresh information on line very soon.
Best regards,
Nguyen Thi Ngoc Van

It may take a little more time before the site is updated but I appreciate the email to reassure me and others that it has not been forgotten. I am also very pleased that the UN have confirmed the importance of good communications. Likewise, I can imagine the pressure UN staff are under to try and update publications, reports, website and issue press updates. I have seen those staff up close and working so professionally when I visited Pakistan and the Afghan border. They are usually not well paid and yet they are unsung heroes saving and transforming lives with little fanfare and having to put up with abuse from some quarters and perennial underfunding. 

I trust we will soon see regular updates of the good news stories in Malawi and where there are problems, I will continue to support the authorities striving to turn things around.
