Church volunteers are appealing for support to help a community in one of the worlds least developed countries.

13 people from St Lawrence Church in Abbots Langley, St Peter’s Church and St Luke’s Church in Watford will be visiting Malosa, a town in the south of Malawi in Africa.

They will visit from June 28 to July 14 to help equip and fund support for the town’s new hospital, nursery and school.

Malawi is a small African country in the southeast and is considered one of the least developed countries on the continent.

With insufficient natural resources of its own, a history of famine, a high rate of HIV-AIDS and a low life expectancy, the country barely meets what we would consider basic needs.

The planned visit is hoping to raise £20,000 to renovate a newly built hospital and help the nursery become sustainable they even hope to buy chairs and laptops for the school children.

The money will also fund the training of nursery teachers and provide nurseries with soya seed, maize seed, vegetable seed and fertilizer for the nursery school garden.
