Malawi Association for Christian Support

MACS has been working in Malawi since 1993, responding to requests for help. This lovely land is among the ten poorest countries in the world. MACS likes to work among the very poorest, who are to be found in the rural areas, to provide basic necessities that we, in the UK, take for granted.

Most of our spending is on educational and healthcare. We build and repair classrooms, supply educational and sports equipment. We provide homes that will enable a nurse, teacher or priest to take up a post in the village. We build or repair churches that are often used throughout the week by the community. The four Anglican hospitals and their many outlying health centres are always in need of drugs and equipment. We are involved in orphan care and water projects.

Just as important as the material things we provide are the seeds of change that we plant through funding education about HIV/Aids, training courses for women or information about permaculture that could bring a subsistence farmer not only enough food to feed his family through the hungry months but a surplus that will bring them access to healthcare and secondary education for their children.

Founded 1993
