Help Get MAC Back On Track

Mac in actionMac joined Joshua at a time when our vehicles were little more useful than wheelbarrows.

Over the years she has suffered at the hands of Malawi’s “interesting” roads, not to mention encounters with minibuses, pot holes, ditches, flower beds and roundabouts.

Mac is not as vibrant as her earlier days and requires a weekly oil top-up. Although there is no harm in giving Mac a weekly gin and tonic in the line of a top-up, a good engine overhaul would indeed be a very welcome Christmas gift.

Having Mac healthy is so important to our work because Mac:

• Deliver’s Likuni Phala to Joshua’s 10 Community Based Childcare Centres which serve over 2,500 meals a week to the poorest infants.

• Takes volunteer health workers out into rural communities to run weekly Health Clinics for under-fives at our Community Based Childcare Centres.

• Gets essential supplies to schools, including uniforms, books, stationery and much more.

Can we revive Mac?  Can we restore her glory?

Yes. Let us respect and restore all that is worthwhile and let us continue to make ends meet along the way. Come what may, tidzakhoza (we will survive).

What are our options?

1. Give Mac an engine overhaul with locally available non-genuine spare parts: £2,000

2. Give Mac an engine overhaul with Toyota spares (locally sourced): £5,000

3. An additional paint job will cost about £2,000

4. Buy a new second hand car to support Mac: £7,500

We just got back from Malawi but sadly didn't get the chance to visit the project. As ever the people of Malawi are inspirational and they make a little help go a long way. Good luck with the appeal.
