IMC Project Updates

April 2019 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update

Reintegration continues to be integral in the continuum of care of children with complex social and medical needs. The team is responsible for many issues in an attempt to uphold the rights of the child.

The team maintains home visits for children who need out of home care. Home, social and health assessments are crucial to the evaluation of the needs of both the family and the child, keeping in mind that the outcome of the assessments might see the child accepted into Zimpeto children’s crisis centre.

April 2019 Children's Feeding Program in Northern Mozambique Update

We have been feeding children (and families) in northern Mozambique for more than 12 years through our IMC feeding program. Over that time, we have fed thousands of children tens of thousands of meals! And only God himself knows how many of these young and vulnerable children's lives have been saved as a result!

But we do know about two in particular for sure.

2 girls and 3 boys in Grade 11;

October 2018 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

In August we welcomed church members from all over Malawi to our Bangula Conference. It was wonderful to see mature church leadership taking responsibility for the conference. For this reason it was the easiest conference yet for our senior Malawian leaders Timothy, Ali, and Bauleni to manage. People contributed food and finances, and were responsible for their own transport to and from the conference. We appreciated the wonderful contribution of other Iris leaders from Zimbabwe and Mozambique.  

October 2018 Children's Feeding Program in Northern Mozambique Update

A mission’s team from our home church in Summerside, Prince Edward Island visited Iris Pemba early in June and spent most of its time ministering in our two children's centres at Mieze and Noviane and among village children supported through our programs. One of the special activities we had planned well in advance was a chicken meal to be served to the many hundreds of village children who regularly attend our Saturday morning discipleship program in Mieze.
