A sincere thank you to our many supporters! You are keeping hope and resiliency alive at Malawi Children’s Village with the 2,363 orphans served. This Malawian run organization could not survive without your support. As we used to say at Wittenberg University: “Having Light We Pass it on to Others”. You are giving light by volunteering, sending encouraging letters and donating.
By your generous donations and continued support orphan houses have been built as have teacher houses. Volunteers have traveled to teach for a term at MCV Gracious Secondary School, desks were built, money for needed curriculum books was donated along with science supplies. We are now also able to provide education to more orphans and continue to keep malaria numbers in check with bed nets for children under five. The School-to-School program has assisted more primary schools in the villages. As mentioned, the heavy floods this spring ruined houses and devastated the maize crop. Your donations this year are helping MCV meet the immediate needs for food in the MCV catchment area.
If you are a new donor welcome! If sustaining, thank you again. Whatever and whenever you give is helpful to the orphans and other vulnerable children.
