With the many disasters that people in our world are facing, we are thankful that PWS&D continues to work with its partners to be God’s healing hand in the face of pain and suffering. Currently, they are providing food assistance for drought-affected people in Pakistan and ongoing support for those affected by floods in Malawi and war in Yemen. The list goes on… Donations to PWS&SD can be made through Knox Waterloo by cheque, donating online, or using your credit card or debit card at the church. If you wish, you can mark your donation for a specific appeal. In many instances, as in the case of Pakistan, the donations will be matched 4:1 by the Government of Canada.
Envisioning malaria-free communities – In Thimalala village in Malawi, Jimmy Gondwe was not sleeping well. He was concerned about the mosquitoes inside his home, fearing they carried the deadly malaria virus. While malaria rates have gone down in Malawi, it remains a significant health challenge, especially among pregnant women and children. Malaria-carrying mosquitoes mostly bite at night, with more than 80 per cent of transmission occurring indoors. To help ensure more households stay healthy and malaria-free, a Presbyterian World Service & Development project is helping to safely treat homes with insecticide. Jimmy reports that since the project, he feels safer inside his home—a now mosquito-free environment. “I am grateful for the support,” Jimmy said.
