We believe that it is important to be interested in the whole of God’s world and even when we cannot perhaps get directly involved we can support those who do.
We are pleased to be involved through one of our members in the work of the Lifeline fund which brings relief and hope to some to the most deprived in Malawi.
The Lifeline Fund have built a village for the care of orphans at Namisu, near Blantyre. The orphanage is home to 80 children, and another 320 benefit from day care. The village provides healthcare, schooling, agriculture and vocational training.
Further schools have been built, including one at Namarita, near Zomba, where no educational facilities had ever existed. As many as 385 pupils enjoy these facilities, and a further 100 children benefit from a thriving nursery school.
Lifeline currently build a new day care centre every 6 weeks. These centres care for hundreds more orphans, providing food, healthcare and clothing as well as teaching them skills such as growing their own vegetables.
Under their orphan scholarship scheme, young people are studying agriculture and irrigation at Malawi University, while others undertake training in nursing, teaching and various trades.
We also support other mission organisations.
