Annual Report 2015 - 2016

2015-2016 has been a challenging year for everyone in Malawi. The flooding in early 2015 gave way to drought in early 2016 and a significant shortage of affordable food remains a problem for many, particularly in the south and central regions of the country. The value of the Kwacha has moved considerably from 637 in April 2015 to 959 at the end of March 2016. Against this background, the trustees have sought to be as supportive as possible when asked for help

Annual Report 2014 - 2015

2014-2015 has been an interesting and busy year for MACS. Sadly our Patron, Donald Arden, died in July. His memorial service in Romsey celebrated his extraordinarily full life. The Memorial Fund in his name will fund the three year training of one new ordinand each year at the Zomba Leonard Kamungu Theological College for 7 years.

Annual Report 2013-2014

2013-2014 has been another busy and successful year for MACS. Our Malawi representative, Grafiud Tione, has travelled thousands of kilometres supervising and helping with the projects undertaken. His reports to trustees have continued to keep us informed, up to date and confident that funds approved are well spent. During the year trustees have approved grants totalling £254,985 for 24 new projects;

Annual Report 2012-2013

2012-2013 has been a busy year for MACS. The political situation in Malawi was more stable than in 2011-12 and fuel was, on the whole, more accessible. This meant our representative, Grafiud Tione, was able to monitor projects regularly and effectively. Our project officer made an annual inspection trip in late September of 2012. Of the 38 applications received during this year, 19 were approved and 6 were completed within the year. A further 18 projects approved in previous years were also finished. In addition, at the end of the year, 20 projects were still on-going.

Annual Report 2011-1012

During the past year, 2011-2012, the volatile and changing political and economic situation in Malawi has proved challenging. This situation led to the cancellation of plans for the 2012 Group Visit. The regular fuel shortages made life difficult for Grafiud Tione, our Malawian representative. However, whenever he managed to find fuel, he carried out supervision of on-going projects. Despite such problems, our project officer was able to carry out her annual visit in July 2011 and in October 2011 Richard Barton and Eileen Eggington were able to travel to Malawi to represent MACS in the 150th Celebrations of the Anglican Church at Magomero. 2011-12 has been a productive year for MACS and we have seen some good progress with 22 projects signed off as complete, 24 new projects undertaken, and numerous long-term projects still on-going.
