A role model for Malawi

Thomas Baldwin learns about the work of an African Christian Aid campaigner who highlights the impact of climate change and the importance of gender justice.

THE historic connection between the countries and churches of Scotland and Malawi is well-established, and it’s a connection which Pansi Katenga was happy to celebrate when she visited Scotland in May.

Pansi is Christian Aid’s country manager for Malawi, so has first-hand experience of the difference that Scottish support made during last year’s food shortage.

The drought, which followed the previous year’s catastrophic flooding, left 6.7 million people – over a third of the Malawian population –without access to sufficient food.

An emergency appeal by four Scottishbased charities – Christian Aid Scotland, EMMS International, Oxfam Scotland and SCIAF – raised nearly £500,000, which was matched by the Scottish Government.

Pansi said that the donations from Scotland had helped Christian Aid keep communities together and secured the long-term future of some of their projects.
