Stop Press Malawi Appeal - March 2019
Posted: 26th March 2019 by Torch Trust
As you may be aware Malawi has been devastated by recent weather events. This has caused wide spread flooding and disruption. Infrastructure of roads and bridges have been swept away. Thousands of people have lost their homes and many their lives. The worst affected areas are the Lower Shire, Chikwawa and Nsanje.
We have been contacted by our partners in Torch Malawi asking for help and support at this time of emergency.
Torch Malawi would like to be able to reach blind and partially sighted people with emergency supplies. These will be sourced in Malawi and taken to the people in most need.
We appeal to our supporters of Torch, to ask for your prayers for this situation. We are gratefully accepting donations for Torch Malawi’s emergency fund and would be delighted to send your financial gifts to Torch House Malawi. If you would like to offer financial support then please contact Client Services on 01858 438260 (Mon - Thurs 10 am - 4 pm) or visit our website for more information on different ways to donate.
Please refer to 'Malawi appeal' when offering your donation.
Thank you for your prayerful support at this time.
Torch in brief
Torch Trust's aims can be summarised as enabling people with sight loss to discover Christian faith and lead fulfilling Christian lives.
Towards this end we provide Christian resources and activities for blind and partially sighted people worldwide. Our services are offered to all who experience sight loss, of all faiths or none, and including those with sight loss who have other disabilities.
Among our services, Torch provides Christian literature, including a free lending library and a range of magazines, in various accessible formats. We also promote Christian fellowship through 110 local Groups across the UK. Torch also runs a varied programme of holidays at our own holiday centre and at other venues around the UK and abroad. Our international arm involves Torch working in partnership with others and being involved in various projects, especially in Malawi which in turn serves the needs of blind and partially sighted people in various other African countries.
Torch Trust has a driving vision for people with sight loss, wherever in the world they may live. Our seven-fold charter is that every blind or partially sighted person may have the opportunity to:
- Explore Christian faith and discover Jesus
- Grow as a Christian
- Enjoy a fulfilling devotional life
- Access Christian activities and resources they need
- Join a church of their choice
- Develop their invaluable God-given gifting
- Contribute to the life of the church
