I am now a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, and can be reached at Christina.e.baum@gmail.com.

 

Below is a list of goodies that I used to love to receive when I was living in Malawi. Perhaps another PCV you know would like a care package:

Trail mix
Wet wipes
Peanut M&M’s or other dark/milk chocolate (it shouldn’t melt)
Dried fruit (crasins, apples, pineapple, anything!)
Non-peanut nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts)
granola
Grape jelly
Beef jerky
“Pilot G2 .38” pens
Parmesan cheese
Pretzels
Drink mixes
Little american snacks

 

*As a heads up, mail can take up to three or four weeks to arrive, while packages can take six to nine weeks. According to the Peace Corps literature I’ve read, numbering your letters and writing “Air Mail” on the envelopes is advisable. Additionally, small padded envelopes for packages are recommended if you are sending something small. Lastly, drawing religious symbols on the envelopes and packages may reduce the chance of them being tampered with*
