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).
