Call for Help – Malawi


 Children of Promise is calling for emergency relief donations for the sponsored children and their families in Malawi, Southern Africa.    

  • Intense, prolonged rains have flooded the country.
  •  Livestock, crops, homes, and belongings have been destroyed or swept away in flash floods.  
  • The president of Malawi has declared 1/2 of the nation a disaster zone.  
  • At least 48 people have perished, and 23,000 have been displaced.  
  • 20,000 homes have collapsed

 Eight homes of our sponsored children have collapsed and will need to be rebuilt.  102 of our children's homes are standing in various levels of water and are leaking seriously, destroying possessions and making eventual collapse possible.  Immediate assistance is needed for food, utensils, blankets, mosquito nets, and material to repair thatched roofs.   

 At present, we are calling for donations for the following:

  • Rebuild eight homes at the cost of $300 per home.   ($2,400)
  • Plastic roofing material for 102 homes at the cost of $20 per home  ($2,040)
  • Food for 102 families (additions to the monthly food allotment from COP) at the cost of $20 per family.  ($2,040)
  • Utensils, blankets, sleeping mats, mosquito nets ($5,000)

      These are the immediate needs known, totaling $11,480.  As travel improves and our director, Rev. Emmanuel Masamba, is able to visit the Mulanje and Blantyre areas, we will keep you updated on any additional needs.


Please join us in providing relief and support to our sponsored children's families in Malawi.  

  • Donations will be wired directly to Malawi by Children of Promise.  
  •  Donations received by Children of Promise beyond the level of need in Malawi will be designated to the COP Emergency Fund for future emergency and disaster needs. 

Donations may be made in the following ways:


  • Complete the form.  
  • Put "Malawi Disaster Relief" in the comment section of the donate page.

CHECK:   Mail to Children of Promise, P. O. Box 2316, Anderson, IN 46018. 

                 Write "Malawi Disaster Relief" on the note line of the check.


Please pray and ask your church to pray. 

  • Some families are living in the tree tops as they wait for helicopters to rescue them.  
  • In some areas, there simply are no dry spots to be.  
  • People are fleeing to churches and schools wherever they can find them in areas dry enough to escape the rising and raging waters.


Thank you for joining us in carrying out one of our major functions of the ministry of Children of Promise:  Rescue.
