A car for a Catholic radio station in Malawi
In many parts of Africa, the faithful have a great longing for God and for the Gospel message, but there is a great challenge of vast distances and poor road conditions, making it difficult for pastoral outreach.
In the Diocese of Karonga in northern Malawi, the Catholic radio station Tuntufye FM urgently needed a vehicle. The diocese contacted us with a request of an all-terrain vehicle to help the station offer outside broadcasts not only from the central station itself but also from all over the diocese. Given the vast distances and difficult road conditions, especially in the rainy season when roads can become impassable, it wasn‘t always possible to involve all the parishes. Since the aim of the station is to include the whole of the diocese, it was frustrating for the faithful in some of the remoter districts never to be able to send contributions from their own parishes.
Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, we were able to provide $30,200, and now the staff of the station and the listeners can take pleasure in more varied and higher quality programs.
“This vehicle has given a great boost to the work of the radio, and greatly reduced our difficulties with mobility, which were hampering the activities of the station,” says station director Innocent Nazombe, happily.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have helped!
