“We have been on the field today. Please meet Ziema, a 55 year old married woman from Zukpiri and a beneficiary of the dry season gardening. She is the second of two wives. She has seven children who have all left to the towns around Ghana. She is currently living with her grand daughter found in the pictures attached. She takes care of the grand child from the gardening and have not engaged in travelling around Ghana to her relatives because of the project. She has also given over GHC200 to her son attending boarding school in Ghana’s newly created region of Savanah. Dapula says thank you to CART for the support to alleviate her condition.”
You might guess that cycling is a healthy activity, Mudzi Rural District Council are using bicycles donated by CART for the health of the community…
“On behalf of Mudzi Rural District Council, we would like to express our sincere gratitude for your generous donation of 20 bicycles to us.
Mudzi currently has 28 health facilities in the district and more clinics are at various stages of construction with the aim of improving access to primary health care. Our Village health workers walk long distances to provide health services to the population far away from clinics.
Your donation today will go a long way towards improving access to health facilities by our communities as well as easing travel by village health workers. We intend to give each ward at least one bicycle.
We would like to assure you that we will put this donation to the intended purpose and we will make sure that these bicycles are kept in good working order to ensure maximum benefit to the people of Mudzi.
Once again thank you very much for your generosity.”
One of the computers donated to Community Project Zimbabwe has reached the beneficiary, the District Administrator of Mudzi District where the Moringa and Beekeeping projects are being implemented.
Godfrey Makwembere – For Community Project Zimbabwe wrote to say: “…
This official was very helpful for Community project Zimbabwe to be allowed to work with Mudzi Rural District Council, the local Authority. He was operating without a computer. This time administration will be much facilitated. Thank you Cartyorkshire – keep up the good helping hand.”
The tree planting was carried out very successfully. Please send our most sincere appreciation to the supporters and trustees of CART. We were able to plant varieties of trees; pine trees, mangoes, oranges, lemons and passion fruits. We still have more land which is being prepared for next years tree planting. In Adwir Hospital we have over 30 acres of land ready for tree planting next year. The photographs of the trees are in our facebook. Please follow the links below.
Closing charity Malawi Mission Freshwater in IoM asked CART to identify places in need of a borehole to clear their residual funds. In total they funded 7 and one repair, CART facilitated establishing reliable contacts of proven trustworthiness and undertaking the administration. CART additionally funded 2 other boreholes in rural areas of the Anglican Diocese Of Upper Shire hard hit by first floods then drought.
Says Father Eston Pembamoyo:
At Kasonya, Matuwi, Mapeto and Njereza near John & Pauline Skill Centre where a borehole is drilled, men, women and children plucked branches and laid their wrappers on the road just as we do during Palm Sundays. They sung praising God for sending angels to see their water shortage problem. We were perplexed and would not believe what we heard and saw. In brief, they say THANK to CART and Fresh Water for coming to support them.
Although people from Mapeto and Njereza joined their friends in celebrations for the water, they themselves are further away and are still struggling for safe and clean water. I have attached to this email some pictures from Mapeto Village. I know that it was a miracle in my life to secure funds for four boreholes. I know boreholes are expensive, I do not think it will be easy to help us get more boreholes in future, but should God open hearts remembering water is life .
Through the borehole project, we have preached a lasting Gospel in Mangochi and Zomba. In all the four places I hear that because of nepotism and segregation by political party affiliation and tribalism, areas such as these are excluded from government developments. Many people now realise that the Church sees beyond tribal, party loyalty or religious beliefs to solve the problem.
I Thank you so much, you have made my work in the service of the community significant, it really makes true of the Scripture in John 10.10b that Christ has come that they people may have life in it fullness.
