Thuma Reserve volunteers help Mphizi women

February 24th, 2015

We’ve been so very, very lucky with some amazing support stories.

And we’re so appreciative of all the help we can get. Recently, the hard-working Scouts from Thuma Reserve generously donated a couple of hours and their expertise to help the women from Mphizi by putting up fencing and a sign. These guys are tough and quick, and in no time they’ve sectioned off 4 hectares with a four-tiered wire fence. Our mothers then start filling it in with thorns to keep goats out. The erection of the TT sign brings on spontaneous singing and clapping - it gives everyone a real sense of ownership of their project and makes us all feel proud.

So enormous thanks again to the team from the Reserve for being so generous, practical and helpful. Without this type of support - the crops would really have no chance. Goats are great, of course, but they can be real buggers.

Thanks for the beans and fertiliser from anonymous supporter

February 23rd, 2015

A generous Malawian farmer outside Lilongwe heard of our project and kindly donated soya beans and fertiliser to our women’s group - and did not wish to be named. So on behalf of Mphizi - a sincere thank you.


Good Luck to Brendan in Malawi

January 18th, 2014

Our great friend and supporter, gardener Brendan Cairney has generously just gone out to Salima in Malawi for another 2 months to work on the Patient Support Garden Project. It’s an amazing commitment by Brendan and his horticultural expertise will reap extraordinary rewards among the dozens of families involved. This is a life-changing, saving saving contribution. We’re looking forward to getting news back from him and maybe even a snap or two.

Thanks Brendan, travel safe and keep in touch.

Thanks to cloud infrastructure specialists, Another 9 for the laptop

November 11th, 2013

It’s amazing how generous people are with their time, money, expertise and equipment. Our heartfelt thanks goes to John O’Brien of Another 9 who very kindly donated a laptop to our Field Manager, Pindani Mfiti. This will make a huge difference to operations from here, and for someone as meticulous as Pindani, a real boon. And so we really appreciate it. Here’s the honorary first boot-up. #start

Generous Help from Curran Gardens and B&Q Ireland

October 25th, 2013

A heartfelt thanks to Philip Curran from Curran Gardens who stocked up Anne-Louise with lots of tools and other gardening supplies to bring out to Malawi this month. Philip sourced these courtesy of B&Q Ireland, so we’re enormously grateful to them also.

These sorts of simple, practical donations make a huge difference to our projects: we run a lean operation. And the women’s groups are ferocious workers for their families’ wellbeing. In the circumstances of their existence, it’s extraordinarily life-affirming. So we’re looking forward to seeing some photos from her field trip and the equipment being put through its paces which we’ll post here. Thanks again.

Thanks to Select Stores Dalkey

October 23rd, 2013

Big giant thanks (as ALK might say) to our friends at Select Stores in Dalkey for the garlic they kindly donated for Lucy at Ndi Moyo. She runs a fantastic, challenging palliative care centre, and every thing we do to help her is so appreciated.
