- 4am Project – This is fun. A snapshot of the world at 4am on 4/4/2009. Sit your lightbox on a tripod, open your lens and capture your 4am world. Submit the images to this site and see what happens.
- The Funzi and Bodo Trust's Blog – This project was initiated by a friend of mine, Ashley Peatfield.
- Touchnote.com – your photo, your message – posted – This is much better than sending an e-card – Touchnote creates a printed card from you image and text and posts it, snail mail, to your recipient. So they have something to touch, pin up and save.
- BBC NEWS | Health | Will 'shocking' care be addressed? – As the father of a guy with learning disabilities this lack of care and treatment is quite distressing. Specialist 'learning disability' health teams should be introduced. It's not enough to say it's impractical or expensive – it's not as if we don't know the people with learning disabilities exist.
UK Indymedia – The Fight to Save Annociate Nimpagaritse
Save Annociate Nimpagaritse

On Friday September 12, 8 policemen raided a house in Burngreave at 6.15 a.m. Frightened women woke up to find police in their bedrooms. The purpose of the raid was to arrest and detain a young Burundian woman, Annociate Nimpagaritse, and prepare the way for deportation to her country of origin.
This a sad story of a young woman who fled to this country to escape persecution. Follow the blog Free Annociate set up by Graham Wroe and take what ever action you feel is right.
Ruth Gledhill – Times Online – WBLG: Zimbabwe: ‘The devil came late today.’
This might not look like the average Mothers’ Union meeting as we know them in Britain, but in terms of peacefulness, good works, child-centredness and Christian goodness, the Mothers’ Union branch in Harare is no different from its UK counterparts. Having known more hardship, its members are probably even more good than the unsung English stalwarts who keep the churches here upright in every sense. There can be no true explanation then for why, shortly after this photograph was taken, this meeting was broken up by Zimbabwe riot police.
Evidence of pointless intimidation in Zimbabwe, and the resilience of The Mothers Union!

A desperate cry from the hearts of Zimbabwe screams across the world
It calls upon all Christians of every denomination in every nation to focus their prayers, in churches, halls, homes or elsewhere, on Sunday 27th April, 2008 on the critical situation in Zimbabwe, a nation in dire distress and teetering on the brink of human disaster.
Let the cry for help touch your heart and mind. Let it move you to do what you can immediately to ensure this Day of Prayer takes place in your country and neighbourhood.
A plea for help from Bob Stumbles, Chancellor of The Anglican Diocese of Harare. If you pray make the people of this oppressed country the focus of your prayers on Sunday.
