Only 12 Hours for a Few More Loads!

These mashufs pulled up in the early morning hours, just in time to offload onto the blue truck in the background. It is bound for the morning market in Suq Al-Shuyoukh, where the harvested reeds will be sold to feed sheep, goats, cattle, and donkeys. Just a few more contributions today, and we'll be to the maximum match point for research funds - at $4250 we get a 100% match from UofSC, and thus reach our total campaign goal!
