MALAWI FOSTER CARE
Reg. Charity 1160817
MARCH 2019 UPDATE
Finally, after two years, our next visit to Malawi is planned! I will be visiting Lilongwe (Malawi) this April 2019 with my sister Jenny. We will spend just over a week with our foster mothers and foster children. We are so excited to see first-hand just how our foster children have grown with the loving care of our foster mothers.
We also aim to spend some time in adapting the three homes to accommodate gas cookers in an effort to move away from using firewood as fuel. Currently the ladies cook on 3 stone fires – this is the traditional method that the majority of Malawians use but due to deforestation, firewood is no longer the recommended form of fuel.
Prior to our visit we are appealing for donations of used/good condition single mattress protectors to use on the children’s beds. We have also had a donation of 50 toiletries bags and would love to fill them with toiletries so we’d much appreciate donations of new toothbrushes, flannels, toothpaste, soap, Vaseline etc We always welcome used children’s books in good condition.
Please pass your donations to my mum, Helena Bushell, by 31stMarch 2019. She can be contacted on 0151 336 6875 or 07887 389875
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued involvement. We are a small charity with a big impact and this is thanks to your support. Katie Bushell (MFC Founder)
