  • Another Hero Headed Home

    Finding ways to gain the necessary funds for so many programs in Malawi is a never-ending necessity. We, of the Malawi Project, have been rather shy about asking for money, even when for such a noble cause as building a new health care center in Malawi. 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 →
