We’ve been connecting recently with Annette Sandwall, who works with a team in and around Mpongwe. The team are researching the impact of alcoholism in Zambia and helping to spread awareness of the dangers. Their report helps to give a bit of context to some of the challenges we’re currently facing there.
We are pleased to announce that you can buy gift cards to give to friends or family as a way of supporting the work of Mpongwe’s People. Our charity gift cards enable you to donate any amount and 100% of the donation will go to our frontline work in Zambia.

Dear friends of Mpongwe,
Thank you so much for your generosity and support for Mpongwe. Many of you have given extra to cover the shortfall whilst we’ve had banking trouble.
We wrote to you a few weeks ago to ask you to pray for our banking situation and the challenges we were facing. Almost immediately we received notice from the bank that we were now able to receive standing orders again! This was great news. However, at the moment we are unable to send the money overseas to Mpongwe, and so we’re asking you to pray again.
Zambia, like many countries, has imposed restrictions on gatherings, education and trade. This has had a big impact on our work there and we are keen to transfer aid as soon as possible, which will go directly to supporting the orphans and vulnerable children’s work there.
Please join us in prayer again that the banking situation will be fully resolved quickly!
