The industrialized nations of the West want to eliminate hunger and poverty in the least developed countries of Africa.

These good intentions have been damaging the continent for the past 40 years.

I want to paint you a very different picture of Africa in the future. One with which you might not be quite so familiar.

Just switched to Kraken and (so far) it seems infinitely better. At the very least, they have human customer support you can talk to.

Any advice from the vets on preferred exchanges?
