April 2017 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

Every children’s home at Iris Malawi plants a field. They prepare the soil, plant the seeds and tend the crops, and then they harvest and eat the produce. This year’s crop was disappointing. While we did receive rain, it was inconsistent and there were long dry spells in-between. There was also a pest which ate the maize leaves, leaving the cobs vulnerable. Still, there was a harvest.

April 2017 Children's Feeding Program in Northern Mozambique Update

As we regularly report, our major on-going food programs in northern Mozambique include regular food distribution to over 150 poor families (including about a thousand children); powdered milk distribution to over 60 mothers and babies; complete food and care for over 80 resident children in Mieze and Noviane; support for another 55 village children through the sponsorship program; and weekly feeding of 600 village children following the Saturday discipleship program. All of this is funded through your gifts to Iris Ministries Canada.

October 2016 Children's Feeding Program in Northern Mozambique Update

Most of those reading this report have never had to go to bed hungry or wonder where their next meal will come from. But that's the daily reality for the majority of poor village children in Mieze. The government claims to have won the war against poverty; but the truth is very different for the rural poor throughout Mozambique. The majority of village children continue to suffer the ravages of  extreme poverty; and a large part of our ministry in Mieze and rural Pemba is helping meet these most basic human needs in Jesus' name.
