While it is quite hot in Malawi at present, the temperature drops later in the year and it can be below 10°C. Many people don’t have blankets.
We are, therefore, collecting blankets and cotton or cotton-mix single bed sheets for the hospitals, prisons and other institutions. To help with shipping, the blankets should be folded and packed in bales of four and tied together with string rather than put in cardboard boxes.
Plans are being made to re-roof a number of orphan’s houses, renovate Mlowe Clinic and rebuild an old mission station house at Livingstonia. A team of qualified trades people and labourers is currently being recruited by Alan Laverock who will oversee this project. The team will be able to transfer some of their skills to local people on this Summer 2010 project.
