Connect With The World: 947 Breakfast Club chat to Shivi Padayachee in Kuwait
69 days ago
Every morning Anele and the 947 Breakfast Club will connect and share stories with people from around the world who are also in lockdown.
South Africa is on a 35 day lockdown, but so are many other countries around the world. Not only will we be checking in on our locals from Joburg, we would like to chat to our South African friends and family from around the world.
If you have a friend, family member or loved one who is currently somewhere outside of South Africa, send their details to our WhatsApp line 084 00 00 947, and we will try to have them on the show to check how they are keeping up...
The 947 Breakfast Club chat to Shivi Padayachee in Salmiya, Kuwait...
Together with her niece Shrika, have a favourite pastime, bonding over listening to the #947BreakfastClub.
It only makes sense then that Shivi misses Shrika the most during this difficult time.
You see, Shivi is a primary school teacher based in Kuwait. Before #LockdownSA, she was in Durban on holiday. The country of Kuwait sounded an alarm that they should come back before the borders closed, as they were also gearing up for their own lockdown.
The lockdown restrictions in the Middle Eastern country have eased up a bit now. They have a curfew and allowed limited times in which to do their shopping. She is lucky to have a close knit South African community there that gets together every night to play games, sing karaoke, make and eat pizza, etc, even though only a maximum of 8 people are allowed to congregate at a time.
These meetings make up for the fact that she has missed a few family birthdays. And even a birth. Listen to the rest of the fantastic chat with Shivi...
Here's what they chatted about and more...
- How are things currently in Chile?
- How is COVID19 affecting the people there?
- Are we getting the full story here back home?
- What is your biggest fear?
- Who are you missing the most?
