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
An additional £6.000 has been sent to Malawi to assist three Anglican boarding schools, taking the total to £22,000 pledged by MACS to our partners in Malawi as Covid-19 arrives in the country.
Canon H Nyasulu, Headmaster of Malosa Secondary School reports that “all schools were closed prematurely on 21st March 2020 following the President's directive to prevent the virus from spreading. The schools closed before students had written mock and end of term two examinations. MSCE Results were scheduled to start in June. The government says when the situation normalises the school calendar will start from where it stopped. The calendar will be pushed forward and the MSCE Examinations will again be rescheduled accordingly”.
