The girls continue to raise funds for the wells in Malawi. They are nearing the $40,000 mark! Truly amazing:) We are grateful for the continued support from many near and far. Our hope is for the third well to be drilled this summer and the fourth well by fall.

Mission Malawi Well Update

Malawi Well Fund: There is great news to share. Because of continued bracelet sales and special gifts, the Emma and Claire Malawi Well Fund has now reached the goal for funding a third $10,000 deep drilled bore well. With requests for more bracelets, the project will continue. Proceeds from bracelet sales and special gifts will now go toward a fourth well, at the very least a $4,000 shallow well, and possibly another $10,000 bore well. The girls are also selling greeting cards (professionally done with Malawi pictures and in packets of 6 cards for $7.00) to help with the water well project and to provide funds for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Malawi Children's Education and Activity Center. In addition, originally designed artwork Malawi/Africa cards are available for purchase (6 cards for $7.00). The German artists (Maria Zacherl of Vilsbiburg and Sascha Hoelldobler of Aidenbach) are Emma and Claire Malawi Well Fund supporters. Cards can be shipped for an additional $2.00/order!
