Photos from Malawi

Peter Kepkay, a film-maker from Vancouver is visiting Malawi and including our projects on his trip.

Delirah Phiri sent some photos of Peter's welcome from recipient groups including farmers, families on food support, and secondary students.

Farmers discuss their progress.

Families unable to work due to health status receive food support.
We look forward to seeing the results of Peter's filming at a later date.

More comments from Delirah:
"The harvest this year is not as expected due to low rainfall in
January but at least some harvest will be achieved.
The Malawi kwacha has been devalued by the IMF [International Monetary Fund]: it's now 250 against the US dollar. Prices of commodities have gone up and people are scared of the future. But I believe this [devaluation] a good move by the [new] Madam President so that donors are able to aid Malawi.
Fuel [gasoline] is being sold at 490 Kwacha which is equal to almost 2 US dollars per litre but still scarce.
We all send our regards to you.
