Missions4Jesus is “Feeding Hope” through Operation SAVE in the hearts of the people of Malawi, the poorest country in Africa. Despite being among the ten poorest countries
in the world, Malawi is known as” The Warm Heart of Africa” because of the good
nature of its people. Hundreds of children gather near a shade tree to listen
to one teacher teach. In Malawi, Africa,
they call it school. Some teachers have chalkboards,
others only their voices. Most kids
don’t have the school supplies they need or decent clothes to wear to school,
or shelter in which to sleep. Only 6 out
of 10 will complete more than the 5th grade. Only 4% will attend after age 13. If they are fortunate, school will provide the only hot meal they’ll
have all day. Aids and Malaria ravage
their 16 million in population, with 1.2 million being orphaned by AIDS and
Malaria. More than 13% of all children
born will not live to see their fifth birthday due to AIDS, malnutrition, and
Malaria combined. Every 15 seconds another child in Africa becomes an
orphan. With your help, these kids will
hear the Gospel, have shoes on their feet, homes to sleep, needed school
supplies to provide hope for a better future. Their teachers will have the proper tools. Their communities will be more complete; and
we’ll all make a difference in the lives of these children half a world
away. Education has proven crucial in
the battle against poverty. It will make
the difference between a hand out and a way out. Help us make a difference in the lives of the
people of Malawi.
Half of the population is illiterate and life expectancy, at its best is only 46 years. Education level has proven crucial in reduction of AIDS rates with 16% less infected among the more educated sectors. Agriculture is the mainstay of their economy, but lack of access to seed, clean water and the skills to effectively operate farms prevents them from providing enough food or income to sustain them, thus the cycle of poverty continues. One hundred percent of Malawians are considered “very poor” and a staggering 60% live below the poverty level.
Since our inception in 2004, we have served thousands and thousands of families, multiple schools and villages throughout Malawi, which is statistically the poorest of the poor. In addition to providing almost two million meals for hungry children each year as of 2017 , we have provided MORE THAN:
130.95 Tons Fertilizer
30,000 Pair Shoes and Crocs
1500 Supply-Filled Book Bags
37 Tons Sugar
272.25 Tons Maize
5000 Pair Reading Glasses

18,000 Containers Vaseline
17,000 Care Packs
34,000 Bars Body Soap
16 Tons Salt
Repaired 2000 Boreholes
Drilled 250 new boreholes
We also established maize mills for manufacturing, warehouses, cafeterias, and orphan homes. With the help of supporters like you, we also provide resources to Teachers and, Pastors. Our Board of Directors and more than 30 volunteers manage operations year round. In addition to distribution of supplies and food, each trip the US Mission Team provides medical and eyeglass clinics, necessary medical care, medicines, treatments and Crusades to spread the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. By strengthening the family and preparing these folks to sustain themselves, we can continue to increase our impact in Malawi each year.
