Omaha Kids Caring for Malawi, Africa

Posted July 12, 2012

We received a request from the mother of a young lady, Briana Murphy in Omaha, Nebraska whose school wanted to help some people in Africa with a 25 pound shipment of goods. Since we know of places and people who would be appreciate and benefit from such, we helped arrange the shipping location. The children collected the items and the high school paid the shipping.

Briana is the girl in the green blouse.

The items were shipped to Blantyre, Malawi and will be distributed there to those who need such items. Malawi is the third poorest country in the world, according to United Nations statistics. LifeNets has actively been working in Malawi by helping with boreholes (wells), clinics and scholarships.
