Healthcare and Hope
Our focus project for 2015-2016 was a small village in Malawi called Lisanjala, where we met two little boys called Harry and Alex (pictured).

Harry and Alex had both contracted malaria as babies. Their village didn’t have a doctor or clinic, so their mothers were forced to make gruelling journeys to get medical help. When Sister Sonia came to the village, she saw that something needed to change.
Sister Sonia spoke to the villagers who told her that a clinic would help save children’s lives. With help from Mission Together, a clinic was built. Sister Sonia also started a feeding programme and organised the building of a water tower to help keep the children healthy.
The Lisanjala village clinic is a wonderful success story, and nobody in the village has died from malaria since it was built, but there are thousands of other children around the world who still have no accessible healthcare and who don’t have the nutrition they need to fight these kind of diseases. With your help, Mission Together is working to change that.
Although the focus for this year’s materials is on another country, children’s projects in Malawi are still being supported by Mission Together. Please continue to pray and fundraise, helping children around the world.
