Food distribution in Malawi

Great to see these pictures of the food items the committee in Malawi purchased with help from CART. They were distributed to 60 elders. A representative stated: “Many people were happy with the assistance. They send their THANKS”.

 

Raising the roof in Uganda

CART are very happy to help Alemere Medical Aid Uganda Community Health Center in putting a roof onto an existing clinic building to make it functional. This saves rent being paid for alternative premises, and thus enhances the long term project of sustainable health care provision in this rural location.
“The building should be completed by the end of the month (March). We would like to thank CART so much for the donations towards completing the health centre. This will help the health centre to save money from renting and above all it will support the health centre to provide quality and essential healthcare services.”

Malawi Emergency food aid with Seed Sowers Trust

CART was able to help emergency food aid distribution in Malawi, facilitated by Seed Sowers Trust. in response to a request received by CART to tide communities over between failed crops and the anticipated harvest,  £1000 was sent. Some of this contribution was raised particularly by the congregation of St John’s Lepton. Food relief of 5kg Maize flour was distributed to 240 beneficiaries at Malosa and Jali. CART received these brilliant photos showing the distribution:

 

 

 

 

 



Zambia Container Arrives

Donations have arrived in Zambia, providing items for the tailor shop:
“The donation is received with both hands as it will add value to the
tailor shop with an increase in sewing machines, sewing material,
among others. With an injection of funds likely to come through in the
next two months from CART, we hope to be self sustaining…

Once again accept our grateful thanks for these donations that will
add value to the welfare of our staff. We extend our heartfelt
gratitude to CART staff and those our donors whom we remain indebted
to for these invaluable gifts.”
