On Thursday Mary visited Jemusi village, an outstation of Mua Mission. They have a project there developed by Sister Josefa of organic horticulture to help with food self-sufficiency and sustainability. They are encouraged not to cut down trees but to use fallen branches for fire wood and use eco-friendly stoves. Mary left some 'gifts' of basic items from the UK such as soap, toothbrushes etc aswell as some printed health promotion material in local languages Chichewa. Although remote and without mains electricity, Sr Josefa is doing excellent work in her own and surrounding villages and N4BW was delighted to link up with her project.
Mary met some ladies from other villages and was interested to hear that one of the villages does not have a well and the women draw water from a river a kilometre away- with all the risks of regular cholera outbreaks.
A big thank you to.... Fr Brendan O Shea MAfr whose advice and support has been invaluable during our stay. He is in the picture above.
