You can be the change, you can make the difference!
Crisis Aid have teamed up with local NGOs in Malawi one of the poorest countries in the world to make a sustainable difference.
We plan on working with existing education and orphanage facilities, developing their existing provision for taking care of the most impoverished in society whilst also increasing their capacity through capital build projects. Working with organisations to provide much needed support to young people. In particular the support will help to educate young girls, orphans and those afflicted by disability and albinism.
Crisis Aid are utilising a UK network of volunteers with existing voluntary experience of working in the remote parts of Malawi serving the needy. Working alongside healthcare professionals and educators, we want to make a sustainable difference to the lives of young people, increasing their chances of survival through improved accommodation, sanitation, nutrition and education.
Your generous donations will be used for making a lasting difference.
Malawi is a small nation in southern Africa with a population of about thirteen million. It is one of the least developed countries with very low life expectancy. Two thirds of the population live below the national poverty line and more than one in five people live in ultra poverty – unable to afford basic minimum food requirements.
Population growth, fertility, maternal and child mortality rates are among the highest in Africa and forty six per cent of children under the age of five are chronically malnourished. Families and communities are grappling with HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases, dependent upon increasingly unpredictable rains to support subsistence farming on severely depleted soils in a deteriorating natural environment. Eighty five per cent of the population lives in rural areas on landholdings of diminishing size.
