Malawi Association for Christian Support
MACS has been working in Malawi since 1993. This lovely land is among the poorest ten countries in the world. We work in partnership with local people on education, health and community projects in the rural areas, where the needs are greatest. People in the community work hard to contribute locally available materials.
MACS and Covid-19 in Malawi
MACS and Covid in Malawi
The virus arrived relatively late in Malawi with the first three cases reported on 2nd April. Ten months later the UN reported that, from over 75,000 tests, 6,047 had proved positive with 185 just deaths, 76% of these deaths being amongst men.
The relatively slow appearance of the virus gave MACS time to provide emergency grants of £2,000 each to the Chilema Lay Training Centre at Malosa and to each of the three Anglican boarding schools in the Dioceses of Lake Malawi and Upper Shire. This helped towards the loss of income from student fees when the government closed all educational institutions, leaving them with no means of paying the wages of support staff or charges for electricity and water. To the Anglican hospitals which, of course, remained open there was £6,000 sent to pay for handwashing facilities, cleaning materials and PPE for St Luke’s and its eight health centres, St Martin’s Community Hospital and St Anne’s Nkhotakota and its three health centres.
