Hazelbank Presbyterian Church in Coleraine has donated its Harvest Offering to help with the construction of an orphan support centre at Chipalawe, near Zomba, in southern Malawi.

The centre will provide pre-school education and a feeding programme for vulnerable children.

Hazelbank is partnering on the project with the Zomba Action Project; the centre will provide two classrooms, an office and store, a kitchen and standalone toilets.

Construction will commence early 2016 and with completed, it’s hoped, by mid summer.
