The Third Sunday in Advent

Sarah’s blog 12/12/21

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.

Saving a Life

Sarah’s blog 26/10/21

Chikambusko is an orphan. She was living with her grandad who went into hospital and subsequently passed away. Chikambusko was alone, suffering from malnutrition and malaria. Levison found her a sponsor and a home with another sponsored child, Timothy, and his grandmother who is now fostering Chikambusko. Although she has been through so much trauma and upset, as you can see from today’s photos, she is looking well, settled and happy. Who knows what would have happened to Chikambusko had The Foundation not helped her. As an holistic approach is taken (not just feeding them) caring about each of them, over time they start to blossom. Today’s photos have made my heart glad. Thanks to her sponsors for their support. If you would like to make a difference to a child like Chikambusko then please get in touch contact_us@changinglivesmalawi.com . It’s only £25 per month. There are so many people helping in small ways and part of the team and together we are Changing Lives Malawi. You can sign up to receive updates. Thanks for reading, Sarah x
