Dear Donor,

we are glad to share with you great news from Malawi! After two years of break caused by the pandemics and all the travel restrictions due to the health emergency, our country manager Angela, with the volunteers Andrea, Valentina and Fabiano are finally back to this wonderful land. After almost 20 hours of travel they have landed on the 15th of October and the periodic monitoring trip has started. They have been immediately wrapped by the typical African landscape that characterizes our collective imagination: red ground, baobabs and a multitude of people along the streets with their bikes or by foot carrying heavy weights.

Despite all the difficulties, our local representative Father Kimu has never stopped and he is always working hard to assure the best education and quality of life to all the children and teenagers supported by our projects. The local population and all the children have warmly welcomed Aleimar and our volunteers with dances and chants, making them feel part of their villages. This monitoring trip is the occasion not only to visit all our projects on the field, but it is also the possibility to hug once again close friends after two years of separation and just distance communication.

The day after their arrival, Angela and all Aleimar volunteers have immediately supervised the functioning of a new well and they have visited the excavation of two new wells in Mangochi District that will be active next week. On the fifth day pedal pumps have been delivered with great joy and: they will allow the local population the access to clean water that will also reduce illnesses and long walks in search for this precious good.

Thanks to your support Aleimar has been able to promote a great impact improving life conditions of a lot of families in many rural villages. We will not stop and we want to assure access to clean water to as many people as possible. Your help is precious and generates a concrete change!

Thank you
