Message to our friends and supporters

We just wanted to reach out to all of you, our wonderful supporters, in these very strange times we are living in, and send greetings and best wishes. We hope that you and your loved ones are all staying safe and well.

We also wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you for continuing your financial support at a time when there are so many other priorities and things to worry about. As well as our regular monthly donations, we’ve also been cheered by some generous individual gifts, just at a time when our two main fundraising events have had to be postponed.

So far, the news from Malawi about Covid-19 has been relatively good. Schools have been shut, however, and the lack of testing and any decent health structure makes it difficult to gauge. It will obviously be quite a time before Pauline can return, and give you more accurate news.

As we have often remarked, if you want to make a difference in Malawi, you have to be an optimist! So in a spirit of optimism, and because we all need something to look forward to “when this is all over”, we have decided to move our Garden Party to Saturday September 5th! Who knows where we will all be by then, but we just might be getting back to some kind of normality, and what a party we will have!

So, dear friends, please put the date in your diary, put the cake-making on hold for now, and I’ll try to resist drinking the famous bottle of Malawi Gin put on one side for the raffle.

Stay safe, keep smiling, and from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for caring.
