October 2008 - Orbus' Ngumbe Land - Photos by Robert Boyle and his daughter Jessica

The photos on this page were taken by Orbus supporters Robert and Jessica Boyle from Melbourne, who visited Blantyre in October 2008. The photos are not all related to Orbus or of the Orbus land, or Orbus assets or sponsored children. Some are, others are general photos captured in and around Blantyre. You can move your mouse over each photo for a description.

The old tobacco kiln on the Orbus site is in good enough condition for Orbus to make use of. We hope to put a roof on it and use it as part of the skills training centre. October 2008
