“Being part of the food distributions and watching such joy and relief; hope filling the desperate eyes of these brave and hurting people was an absolute highlight,” said Michele Annibal, a Climbing For Christ board member from Philadelphia, PA, USA and a participant in Mission: Malawi 2016.
“They celebrated more about some kilograms of maize than some Americans would celebrate a free car. It underscored for me just how hungry they are, how every day is a struggle, and yet they persist in hope and praise God for what little they have. Seeing them relax with a shred of dignity – I will never forget that.”
Malawi is one of the 20 poorest countries in the world. The poverty there has been magnified in the past 15 months by weather (destructive flooding followed by near-drought conditions) that has destroyed crops, driven up food prices, and left millions on the verge of famine.
