The May 2023 newsletter is on our Newsletters page, and is well worth reading, mostly written by our manager at Chiringa, Chikondi Gundo. The AGM will be held on Zoom on Wed 5th July at 2.30 pm. Contact us in any way you wish in order to receive papers and details of the Zoom link, in advance by email. Zoom should make attendance easy.
Much has happened in Chiringa in six months – lots of activities supported by our good supporters in Scotland (see the May newsletter for a summary) – plus (in March) the worst cyclone to hit southern Malawi in recent history, leaving many dead and over half a million homeless – and your Scottish and Malawi trustees are working hard to make best use of your funds in times when financial support of a small charity remains solid but limited and costs, in Malawi as elsewhere, rise inexorably. We ask you to Follow us on Facebook – find us at ‘Abba’s Rest Orphans’ – and check the website from time to time – www.abbasrest.org and, if your funds allow, you’ll find our bank details on the Donating page. Two Scottish trustees will visit Chiringa this August – totally at their own expense – to meet the Malawi team and see for themselves how your generous gifts are being put to use.
