    At 48-years of age Malita Mthita has not only been unable to visit friends, she has not been able to travel 500 meters to a church assembly, or journey five kilometers to the nearest healthcare facility for much needed attention. She has been unable to leave her immediate village, and could not even enjoy a pleasant trip to the nearby market. Malita’s legs were paralyzed at birth, and as she grew there was nothing that could be done to help her walk. This left her in a near impossible state when it came to getting around.

However, when we see the suffering taking place so needlessly, it compels members us to ask that you help us to improve the lives of these people by contributing the needed funds. It is so fulfilling when others, often those who have never gone to Africa, recognize the need and help change lives. A... Read more →

  • BUV Fills Transportation Need

    The Malawi Project has sent three Basic Utility Vehicles (BUV) for use in Malawi. These units supply needed transportation in a nation that moves from place to place on foot, and transports most things on heads and backs. One such unit is based at the Namikango Mission and Clinic where the Project has its southern point of distribution for much of Malawi. BUVs take much of the load off of man or woman power, moving it more efficiently and effectively. According to Ben Hayes, who moved from Houston, Texas a year ago, to be the station chief at Namikango, “This... Read more →
