This is November 2018

31st October 2018: It is hard to believe that this can be happening in our Rich, Globalised World, well into the 21st Century. That a Tiny, Irish, Voluntary organisation is the only one to help, despite millions of all world currencies being handed to Malawi, all-day, everyday. It...

Plaques for Pumps

20th October 2018: Plaques on pumps have always presented problems. Painting on to the glossy surface of tiles needs a lot of care and attention. Just recently our eldest son Éamonn did the trip to Malawi in our place, while I had surgery on my throat. He thought...

Embangweni

A Pump in Chiphwanya, Kasungu

28th June 2018: With all the action on trees, reporting on pumps has moved to where I don't readily see it. Martina and Fatima are doing the spreadsheets. All I really know is that this pump was funded by Sr Geraldine Smith from Dublin, Ireland and that is...

A Well
