Liwiro la Malawi 5K Run/Walk

final logo

We run for Malawi is Liwiro la Malawi in Chichewa.

On March 22, 2014, Malawi Orphan Care Project will host a 5K Run/Walk in downtown Mansfield, Ohio.

Why Liwiro la Malawi?
The money raised from this 5K Run/Walk will help to improve the lives of orphans at the Kanyenyeva Orphan Care Ministry in Malawi, Africa.

Malawi is an extremely poor country of 15 million people.  There are at least 1 million orphans in Malawi due primarily to HIV/AIDS and malaria. The physical growth of at least 50% of the children under the age of 5 has been stunted because of chronic malnutrition.  It is estimated that 55% to 74% of its population live in extreme poverty. This is why Liwiro la Malawi (We run for Malawi).

Madzi 4 Malawi

Madzi 4 Malawi 2.2Madzi means water in the native Malawian language of Chichewa.

In January, 2013, a well was put in at the orphan project allowing the people from the area to have clean water which is close to their homes. Next, we want to help them have a clean way to carry and store this clean water. For a donation of $15, you can provide a water pack for a caretaker of an orphan.

More information will be coming soon about these water packs.

Click here to donate. Then please click here to send us a note to let us know that you want your donation to purchase a water pack for a caretaker at the orphan project.
