FVM has been involved in the fight with other stakeholders (government and NGO's) in planning and responding to Coronavirus. As of the end of July, over 4,000 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed. Only 0.1% (24,192 out of 18,000,000) have ever been tested and yet 12.4% are tested positive, and 2% deaths.

- 300 children daily have been given food while observing social distancing the past two months.
- Electricity has been connected at Chifundo Nursery School in Nadolo Community in Mulanje. We are all so excited!
- Community based gatherings have been suspended until further notice due to COVID-19.
- Radio broadcasts of the Good News continues without interruptions. Radio use has proven more effective in the current COVID-19 pandemic as many people opt to listen to Trans World Radio.
THANKS TO OUR DEDICATED STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS: Please take time to "meet" Godfrey:
I am Godfrey M’mwala. I am a member of the committee of the volunteers who provide support to the education and feeding of the children in GVH Taulo area, in Zomba. I have witnessed the great work FVM is doing in this community for the past 10 years now. I have seen a great transformation of this community since FVM started working in this area.
We are involved in a communal farming to supplement the food that FVM is providing. Our participation has given us sense of ownership and we do not wait for others to tell us about need of feeding our own children.
