In our first mission trip in 2009, KOCM was feeding about 150 orphans a lunch of nsima (corn flour and water) and vegetables, twice each week. With the generous support of all of our MOCP members, they are now feeding over 500 orphans, FOUR times per week.
Malawi experienced heavy flooding early this year which had disastrous effects on this season’s crops. Pastor Andy Jones reported that Malawi’s crop yield decreased by 70% this year. The entire country is feeling the effects of the floods, and as a result, food is becoming scarce and much more expensive. We are planning to raise 25,000 additional dollars to help the people of Kanyenyeva survive during this “Hungry Season” beginning in November, when their food supplies start running out.
The additional funds will help KOCM expand their lunch feedings to SIX days per week, plus the funds will provide needed corn maize for the caregivers and their families during the coming months. For some orphans, this lunch program is the only meal they receive each day. Your generous donations will go a long way in preventing our brothers and sisters in Malawi from possible starvation.
We have about $10,000 left to reach our goal of $25,000!! Your generous donations can be mailed directly to Malawi Orphan Care Project. Please indicate “MOCP –25 to Stay Alive” on your check. Or you may make donations by credit card or PayPal.
