Special Malawi Appeal

The HIV Resource Centre in Ekwendeni, Malawi is as busy as ever, doing its amazing work with the many young people in its large catchment area. The Centre has been in operation for 24 years now and it has touched hundreds and hundreds of young lives through its activities and its outreach program with over 60 youth groups. Over the years, our church has developed a strong partnership with the Resource Centre, and we continue to support its work through regular Mission donations.

In September, Jane and Han Broere will once again visit the Resource Centre and as before, we would very much like to provide them with a gift of money to take there, and to use to purchase something they see is needed, useful, life-changing, for the people we help serve. In order to raise that money, we are inviting all members and friends of the congregation to give to this special purpose, over and above our normal giving, if we are able and happy so to do.

Donations for this special gift will need to be received by September 3 to enable Jane and Han to distribute the funds while they are in Malawi. Any funds received after that date will still be used 100% for the work of the Resource Centre, but as part of the regular Church of Scotland Geneva support for its operating costs. Likewise, any funds raised through this appeal that are excess to the needs that Jane and Han find there, will be fully used towards our church’s regular donations to Ekwendeni.

Donations are very welcome either as cash in the offering plate on Sundays (in an envelope marked ‘Special Malawi appeal’) or as bank transfers (again please note ‘Special Malawi appeal’ when making these electronic transfers).

As a reminder of the many important aspects of the Resource Centre’s work, attached is a brief extract from Jane and Han’s report from their last visit in 2022.

With many thanks in advance, on behalf of the Mission Committee,
Jenny Rietbergen
