Dedza, 19 March, 2022 / 8:35 pm (ACI Africa).
Learners at a school for the deaf in Malawi’s Catholic Diocese of Dedza are among the beneficiaries of the donation offered by the Catholic charity in the United Kingdom, Missio UK.
A Tuesday, March 15 report indicates that learners at Mua school for the deaf in Dedza Diocese received funding from the UK-based Catholic entity, which has not only improved their learning but has equally boosted their living conditions.
In the report, the school matron, Sr. Paulina Mpingo, says that the donation, which was received through the Diocese’s Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS) office was put in a project that had two phases that she listed as the phase of construction and the phase of purchasing food items.
“We bought various food stuff like maize, beans, rice, groundnuts, flour, sugar, salt, cooking oil, chicken, beef (a whole cow) and many others; these have helped us to provide the children with proper meals which was not the case before Missio UK helped us,” Sr. Mpingo is quoted as saying.
The member of the Sisters of Servants of the Blessed Virgin Mary convent, who are taking care of the children at the school, says that although the school has a farm, very little is harvested because of inadequate farming resources.
