On International Women’s Day I just want to say THANK YOU to the strong women in Northern Malawi who are nurturing the hundreds of orphans and other vulnerable children. At the Foundation, women play an important role. There are women trustees, employees, volunteers, then there are the women bringing up children in poverty, women bringing up children on their own, grandmothers or aunts bringing up children or women fostering children. Thank you all. We see your strength, we see your struggles. We will continue to support you to care for the children you look after and nurture. I hope you enjoy the photos of just some of the hard working women. Thanks for reading, Sarah x
There’s been no rushing around for me shopping and meeting people this advent season. I am so grateful for the care and attention I received from all the NHS staff when I was in hospital recently, but it’s going to be a while before I’ll be back to normal…whatever normal is!
Advent season is about waiting and reflecting and the third Sunday is about love. Who do we love and care about? How do people know that we love and/or care about them? Hopefully, by our actions. Also by our kind words.
How do the hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children supported by The William Stewart Foundation know they are loved and cared about? by our actions. A new football means the world to them. A blanket for two children to share to help keep them warm at night. Reusable sanitary towels, pants and soap giving a teenage girl her dignity back and enabling her to attend school all month like her male peers. There are so many ways we can show these children that they are important and cared about.
So in this season of giving, we would be so grateful for an extra football, or a blanket, or soap for the children. Can you help feed them an extra meal or provide some fruit tree saplings. By your actions they will know they are loved and not forgotten. Thank you for reading and supporting us.
