While we are all celebrating the amazing gift of a bridge across Chatama River in Nandolo Community from friends and partners of FVM, several activities have taken place as well. FVM Canada has participated in a number of engagements with other stakeholders including the Malawi Government. In the last month the following usual activities were successfully carried out: eye care services, sports tournaments, radio broadcasts, preschool & feeding, commemoration of People with Disability Day, and World AIDS Day commemoration.
There were sports tournaments held in both communities where young people in primary schools (ages 6 to 19) were brought together to compete for a trophy and money. The aim was to entertain the community members and bring them together in unity...an important component in the development of healthy communities. This event was also used to teach and share important information on issues such as HIV and AIDS, education, general health and other psychosocial messages.
-For continued coordination and communication between FVM and various government agencies and community partners.
In His Service,
