Bishop Mackenzie primary school Magomero 

Funds raised by the congregation of Haslingfield Link Church near Cambridge were sent to MACS by José Hopkins for books, globes and wall clocks to be bought for learners in this rural primary School. Our Representative Grafiud Tione, accompanied by the Diocesan Secretary Christopher Zambira, delivered these valuable resources to the Head Teacher Mike Gawanani who said, "We had a nice day when Mr Tione visited. We thank MACS and our friends at Haslingfield for supporting us us. These resources will improve lesson delivery for teachers and learners. We are enjoying very much. May God bless you always"

Nembere water pump
Nembere Borehole (002).jpg

A well has been drilled and a water pump has been installed at Nembere.  

The  work was completed by "Afripumps" using a  water drilling company based in Zomba.

This project was funded by Haslingfield Parish Church.

A letter of thanks received from Nambere is copied below.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to you and the entire board of MACS for the approval of a grant amounting to 3.5 million Malawian Kwacha which has made us to install a new beautiful and durable borehole at St Michael's Nembere in Magomero parish.

 

Be assured that, your assistance is greatly appreciated. It's timely response, previously people walked a long distance fetching safe water hence wasting time and energy that could have been used for other profitable developments.

 

This means that, the beneficiaries are both the Anglican Congregants and all surrounding villagers from different denominations. They are also relieved from different diseases that claim many lives when using unsafe water, such as cholera and other related risks. With Covid 19 pandemic this project will help us to prevent the same. We are very grateful, thanks so much, keep on helping. ZIKOMO KWAMBIRI.

 

For the effective use ;

The contractor has given us a guarantee of one year. The committee too was trained to identify faults and maintain when ever necessary

 

God bless you ! God bless MACS!

 

Sincerely.

Mikanga
New double classroom block at Mikanga

Mikanga School is situated in Ntchisi North West. .

Previously the school only taught years 1 to 6 so pupils had to travel to more distant schools for their final years of primary education. Following the construction by MACS of one double classroom block the school will start operating standard seven this academic year; however this still left the challenge of other classes learning under the trees which is not conducive during the hot and rainy season. So MACS has now constructed second double classroom block at Mikanga.

New double classroom block at Chakulanjala

Chakulanjala School is situated in Kanyendera village.  The school has a total enrolment of 746 learners of which 336 are boys and 411 are girls. Currently the school has eight teachers; seven are male and one lady teacher. The school has a good reputation for sending learners to secondary school but it had just seven dilapidated classrooms that were constructed some years back. Three years ago, communities around the school managed to construct a classroom block; however due to poor workmanship coupled with inadequate building materials the block was not put to use as it emerged to be more of a death trap.  MACS has funded and supervised the building of a new double classroom block.

The new block is now in use.

Renovation of House No.6 at St Martins Hospital, Malindi
House No.6

"St Martin's Mission Hospital at Malindi has a constant need for new houses to help with the motivation and retention of staff. The staff house No 6, built in the 1970's, was almost derelict, but the foundations and walls were strong. We are so pleased that our funds have helped to transform the house into a beautiful home for the Radiographer, Mr Paul Dzoole and his wife."

On behalf of the four graduated students thus deacons Sandress Mganja and Lucius Manjawira (ADUS), Ordinands Lawrence Kambalame and Ganizani Carlos (ADSM), the two dioceses (ADSM and ADUS) and on my behalf would like to thank you and the entire MACS committee for the timely help given to our graduated students. Indeed their mobility is now eased and for sure, no one will say I didn't do pastoral work due to mobility issues. Once again, thank you very much for the support you always give us and I hope you are doing to do the same to the two students (Limbani Patrick-ADSM and Noel Phiri-ADNM) who will be graduating this coming October, 2022.

Once again, thank you very much for the support

Stay blessed,

Fr Charles Chiutu
