Solidarity with Malawi people

Be assured that there are 5 blind people in Dzaleka praying for the two kind sisters in Ireland

As a means of solidarity during Lent 2 sisters from the Anglo-Celtic Province donated €200.00 to Michelle in Malawi. Michelle works with the Jesuit Refugee Service. Michelle explained how the money is being used in the Camp:

“You have no idea the interest in the gift of 200 Euros. 
 
We finally decided it would be used to assist 5 blind people in the camp to start small livelihood activities. They have been given some small assistance in the form of dried fish, salt, maize and soap. This will enable them to get enough to eat while they use a small initial grant of 10 Euros each to buy something to sell. One man will buy 5 litres of cooking oil to sell in small amounts. The others will buy vegetables from local growers to sell in the camp. Mack our social worker is overseeing this as he knows the people well. If they manage to make a small profit they will receive another 10 Euros to continue. 
 
Be assured that there are 5 blind people in Dzaleka praying for the two kind sisters in Ireland.”
