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
021 brought new challenges to Malawi as new variants of Covid-19 spread up from South Africa. In the first few weeks of January 2021, the number of people confirmed with the disease doubled every four to five days and by the end of March the number of deaths had risen almost sixfold in three months.
In this renewed emergency, MACS was able to contribute £8,000 to the Anglican Council of Malawi to be distributed between all four Anglican Dioceses in Malawi for their programmes to raise awareness of vaccines and to build resilience within the community. A further £3,750 was divided between St Michael’s Girls’ Secondary School, Malindi, Malosa Secondary School and Bishop Mtekateka Secondary School – as well as at Community Day Secondary Schools at Nkope and M’mangas in order to fund PPE within the schools.
