I've got a close friend stationed in Africa and want to send him a care package. I can't afford to have it be very heavy since I'm sure postage will automatically be expensive due to the distance. Any ideas as to what to send that can travel well (it takes 10 days to get from the US to Africa), can withstand the heat, and isn't super heavy, but is useful?
