Update From Fr Taylor
The clinic is being run by the MEDICAL MISSIONARIES OF MARY (MMM) and it is located beside our church at Mtsiliza. The clinic is running very well. A small fee is charged to help pay the salaries and provide the drugs. We hope by July that the Government will provide the salaries. The people are very happy with the service.
Students we support
The students we support come from many different schools. 10 orphans from each of our 2 schools St. Bakhita and St. Michaels. One from Catholic University, one from St Paul’s Minor Seminary, three from Mua school of the deaf, two from Lilongwe technical college, one from medical school, three from Njewa secondary school, three from Mkwichi secondary school and various other assistances to different students.
Breakfast for Primary school students
We no longer assist with breakfast as the logistics were too difficult i.e. providing firewood for people to cook, sugar and maize meal etc.
Solar Lamps Project
The project is viable but will require further preparation before I can launch it.
I undertook this project in order to secure the future financial stability of the parish. I am completing this month two small apartments for rent as well as renovating the main house. It is in medium density area called area 15.
This week we have started building 3 classrooms at OUR LADY HELP OF CHRISTIANS at Ntandire to bring the school up to standard 8. The parents are very anxious to have a full primary school.
On the 4th of June the Arch Bishop is coming to celebrate with us St. Kizito Day and Pentecost. We will have Confirmations for about 180 young people and adults.
Am keeping well continuing to enjoy the work here. I will be in Ireland from the 15th of August to the end of September. Looking forward to the break.
Please convey my thanks to the support group for their wonderful work in supporting our developments.
Fr. Francis Taylor
