Livelihoods and Food in Rural Malawi

Project Leader:

Reverend Martin Mtumbuka



As the global statistics indicate, COVID-19 spreads very fast, and Malawi is poorly prepared to fight the outbreak. This support will enable Chipunga Farm to help the community deal with the pandemic on a number of levels. In addition, as COVID-19 is largely a health issue, once it spreads in the country, workers at Chipunga Farm risk to be effected by the outbreak, especially our older workers with underlying health conditions. The next health facilities from the farm is 16 kilometers away. This distance is too long without a reliable means of transport. The farm has a pick up vehicle that could be used in times of such emergencies for both workers and community members. However, the vehicle is in a bad shape requiring major service. Current measures declared by the government are that employers should provide and promote personal hygiene and safety for their workers. Chipunga Farm needs assistance to put these measures – sanitizing solution, face masks, gloves, etc. – in place. Funds will support workers and community members with personal hygiene initiatives, such as hand washing facilities and community education regarding COVID-19 through posters; provide water treatment chemicals and sanitizing solution for households; support workers with PPE such as face masks and gloves; repair farm vehicle to transport those who are ill to health centers.

We thank each one of our kind benefactors. Your donations has been very vital in us expanding our farm and thereby employing more part time workers. The little they receive from the Farm has brought food in their homes. However, our target is still not reached. Your kindness and generosity is needed even more today as the COVID 19 is hitting the hardest. Your contribution with enable us increase some hectares on the farm and employing more people thereby shielding them from the economic pains brought in by the pandemic. All this prepares the Diocese to be self reliant in future unlocking the wheels of unstoppable gospel ministry
