Together in Malawi

Moses* and his teacher, Patricia. *Name changed.

Every year Mission Together produce an assembly focusing on one of our children’s projects overseas. The assembly enables pupils in England and Wales to discover more about the children supported by the project and the world in which they live. This year we’re getting to know Moses who attends the Mua School for the Deaf in Malawi.

As there are only six schools for the deaf in Malawi (in England there are 22), children travel many miles to secure a valued place. With a country lacking transport infrastructure, the distances are too great to travel daily and so Mua School has a boarding house to accommodate its 170 pupils.

Mua School was built by the Catholic Church and though now state run, the Church still oversees aspects of school life. One aspect is the residential care of the pupils, undertaken by a small community of Religious Sisters.

The Sisters ensure the pupils physical, spiritual, and medical needs are met. In this they need our help. Mua school is located far from the main hospital. And as there are few cars, buses, or emergency vehicles, if the pupils become sick it is difficult to help them get the medical care they need. This year we are hoping to raise enough money to buy a min-bus for Mua School.
