Report on Receipt of CART Donation to K and B foundation
“Dear our Friends in Christ,
Greetings from Malawi in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. On behalf of K and B Foundation, l would like to thank CART most sincerely for the kind donation. This donation has gone a long way to help many people in need such as flood victims in the lower parts of Malawi, Chikwawa district where most people have been affected. Our friends have lost their belongings because they’ve been washed away by the Cyclone Anna. I must assure you that this donation has come in time. Covid 19 has been a major challenge to us too which makes these donations more valuable.
Let’s continue to remember our families and friends in prayer during this world-wide crisis.”
“May God bless you all as we have donated 10 cartons of assorted goods and three bicycles to Anglican Diocese of Malawi.”

River beds dry, the women have to walk far and dig deep to get their precious water to feed their crops.They are determined to make the garden work though all the seasons, no matter how hard. “
Great to be able to share these photos of some of the trees provided from our Trees for Christmas appeal last year now coming into fruit. Due to the success of the appeal, CART is running a similar appeal in 2020: Trees for Christmas 2020

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:
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.”
