Valuable Lessons Learnt in Lebanon

It has been a privilege to have supported SKILD’s (Smart Kids with Individual Learning Differences)  pilot project in Lebanon to develop approaches that help pupils with special needs to continue in mainstream education. Parents and teachers have reported improved in pupil performance and behaviour; Teachers are  better equipped to assess and teach children with learning differences; SKILD learnt more about implementing special education services.  The pilot’s achievements were used to influence the Ministry of Education target to recruit 30 special needs educators to scale up this knowledge and help more schools in Lebanon to improve the wellbeing of children who are at social, emotional and academic risk. "We are grateful to MAI for coming alongside SKILD on this highly worthy

Leonard tour success

The visit of our South African Partner, Pastor Leonard Gcabashe, was a great occasion. Accompanying Leonard on the tour for the first was our new Executive Director, Steve Travis.  The tour of England and Northern Ireland involved a range of events from a Charity Concert, a Barn Dance, a Fish & Chip supper, to private gatherings and public meetings in churches. The aim of his visit was to thank the many MAI Supporters with a commitment to Embo and to introduce new friends to the ongoing needs of the wonderful Caregiving ministry that MAI supports.

Thanks for your support in 2017!

  Our wonderful supporters meant that we received a total income in 2017 of £172,204.  Although lower that in recent years, this is accounted for in that a major capital appeal was coming to an end as was another of our projects (in Lebanon) and the adverse situation in South Sudan. MAI made a significant capital investment during the year to enable the building of the Clinic TB extension in Embo.  This was a major factor in creating a higher level of expenditure - £195,259 - than income through the year.  This was because capital funds received in 2016 were spent in 2017. The Annual Appeal was a great success too!  Supporters effectively doubled the value of their gift thanks

Freedom from discrimination

This man is 43 years old and he lives with his son in Itahari, Sunsari. His wife left him some time ago due to his substance abuse problem and daily arguments. At the age of 16, he faced family problems as his father brought a second wife into their home. His parents used to have arguments and fought on a daily basis. This troubled him which created mental health problems. As a result he started taking drugs, drinking alcohol, and smoking cigarettes for peace of mind. He was being criticised and faced discrimination due to his problem. After using drugs for a long time, he joined a rehabilitation center in 2013. He got back home after four months but the

Report Back Event great success!

Our Annual Report Back evening on Friday 10th November was a great success.  HEALTH & HOPE featured video reports, interviews with volunteers and live music.  It was also the evening when it was announced that John Earwicker would be standing down as Executive Director at the end of the year.  His Assistant Director, Steve Travis, will take the reins for the coming year. The silent auction was a great success and raised over £1,400.  Ken Wood became a supporter of MAI  after his daughter Laura and wife Helen joined the volunteer teams to EMBO.  He is also the Director of Operational Risk Management for the Ardagh Group which manufactures glass and metal containers.  Many of Ardagh’s products have won outstanding

Two Volunteers report on their visit to Embo

Caroline writes: This man is a 41 year old male patient that the caregiving team currently supports.  He shared some of his story with us and he has a very positive outlook on life that has been enhanced through the care programme. He lives like any other patient in very minimal surroundings in a breeze block hut with a tin roof with just two very small rooms in very poor light.  The walls are dirty and depressing.  Access to his property was difficult as it was good a walk from the car and down a steep rock face which would be quite dangerous in adverse conditions. Maya has been caring for him for a number of months whilst he recovers
