Urgent COVID-19 Needs

Food Packs

Our partners at VOH: Malawi need our help to feed the children they care for and their families.

 

The COVID-19 crisis is only just beginning in Malawi. With government restrictions being put in place, one of the biggest fears for these vulnerable children and their families is actually starvation.

 

VOH: Malawi is caring for nearly 300 students representing 200 households by providing them with a food pack that includes a 1 month supply of food staples.

 

The cost for one food pack is $44. You can help with a financial gift designated to VOH:Food Packs.

Support Missionaries
Jef and Renatta Walton

Did you know that missionaries like VOH: Malawi Directors Jef and Renatta Walton raise all their own financial support? They depend on individuals and churches like us to be able to continue their work.

 

Again due to COVID-19, they have recently experienced a drop in financial support. Yet even with this challenge, Jef and Renatta have been dipping into their personal budget to ensure all the children at the school continue to have enough food to eat.

 

You can support them by designating your gift to VOH:Leaders.

Oasis + VOH: Malawi

Oasis is excited to partner with Village of Hope: Malawi in their outreach to orphans and vulnerable children in Lilongwe, Malawi. Over the coming years we will have the opportunity to sponsor children, support expansion projects that will benefit the children and their community, and provide financial support, prayers, and encouragement to Canadian missionaries Jef and Renatta Walton and their family.

 

You may not be the one to cross the globe and work in a foreign country, but your generosity and your prayers can allow those who do to thrive. Your involvement will stretch your faith, and it will touch the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.   

 

“Whatever you did for one of the least of these… you did for me.” – Matthew 25:40

THE VOH MISSION

is to bring lasting hope to orphans and vulnerable children throughout Africa by providing them with emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual and loving care so they can embrace adulthood as contributing members of society.

THE VOH VISION

is that all children are loved and cared for.

About VOH: Africa

Villages of Hope: Africa (VOH: Africa) is a registered Canadian charity that brings hope to children in need throughout Africa. They currently have 10 villages located in 5 countries.

They are located on the outskirts of the capital city of Lilongwe in an area called Kauma.

Long Term Goals

VOH: Malawi continues to develop a full 3+ acre site where they plan to ultimately build a full pre-school – grade 12 school. In May 2020 they completed construction of a double school block for pre-school children! This adds to the two school blocks that are currently on site for students in grades 1-3.

Thanks to your generous giving VOH: Malawi now has the funds they need to build their administration block, where staff will have a safe place to work on site. Construction on this project will start once government restrictions due to COVID-19 are lifted. There is also an ablution (bathroom) block under construction, though this has been paused due to COVID-19.

Future plans include more classrooms, a health care clinic, a kitchen for expanding the feeding program, a community hall and a levelled soccer pitch.

How To Get Involved

Child Sponsorship

Child sponsorship makes it possible to provide education, nutrition, healthcare, and spiritual discipleship programs. A new class of pre-school children will be available for sponsorship at the beginning of each school year. So don’t worry if you were not able to sponsor a child at this time. 

Support Jef & Renatta

Building Projects

VOH: Malawi is being built from the ground up, and you can help. Their next goal it to build an administration building at a cost of approximately $100,000. You can contribute by designating your donation to “VOH:Projects.”

Canadian missionaries Jef and Renatta Walton are the directors of VOH: Malawi. They have led this work for the last 4 years. The Walton family raises their own support, including salary and living expenses. If you want to help provide for them you can designate your donation to “VOH:Leaders.”

Continued Prayer

Pray for Jef and Renatta Walton and their family – for health, safety, vision, and resources. Pray for the teachers and staff at VOH: Malawi. Pray for the children and families who are a part of the VOH program, and for their community.
