Fieldwork staff work visit MCV’s 37 villages regularly to communicate with the village volunteers and support households caring for orphans.  Fieldworkers, Florence and Catherine, assist families to make sure that orphans basic needs are being met.  The work done ranges from the simple to complex, but is always essential.  Examples of assistance can include providing a child with a school uniform, encouraging a caretaker to be tested for HIV/AIDS, providing a new roof for a caregiver’s home, or identifying a sick child that should be taken to the hospital for treatment.

MCV board members and other American volunteers often join the field team when they visit Malawi to assist in the villages.  In the picture above, Mary Pomeroy fits a supportive collar to the neck of a disabled child in one of the villages surrounding MCV.
