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.
God of compassion
whose love reaches to every part of your world,
bless the people of Malawi at this time,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
MACS and Covid-19 in Malawi
MACS commits £24,000 to our partners in Malawi as Covid-19 spreads in the country.
In a rapidly developing situation, MACS has made 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 is in order to assist in on-going expenses until the planned re-opening of all educational institutions 13th July. This came on top of the £6,000 which was sent to Anglican hospitals for cleaning materials and Personal Protection Equipment at the start of the pandemic. A Post-Covid Support Fund of £10,000 has been set on one side in order to aid the necessary reconstruction of medical and educational services in the country once the worst of the virus has run its course.
