Help the People of Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi

Hi, my name is Emily Briggs and I had the incredible opportunity to meet John Mulepa at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi in September of 2021. 

He is a refugee from the Congo, now living in Malawi. His parents were killed in a tribal conflict, so he and his siblings had to flee for safety. They walked to Malawi and landed at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp, where 55,000 families also reside. 

He now has started an organization there called Sowing Hope. It is a preschool and elementary school for the camp. Education is a huge need at the camp as 85% of kids are not in school. He also has a farm to produce income and to feed the kids. He plans to also start a clinic, because there is only one clinic for 55,000 families, with 20 beds. 

John has recently informed me that there is now even less aid for the refugees at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp (previously only $2/mo. per person). And refugees are not allowed to work outside of the camp, since they are not residents of Malawi. Because of this, there are a lot more people in starvation and fewer kids getting educated. 

Please join me as we support John and his work at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi.
