Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Dzaleka Refugee Camp, Malawi
March 12, 2019
Refugee churches in Dzaleka are never quiet. Everyday there are different activities happening that give support and strength to the members. Today we met these two women from the Pentecostal Community Church who volunteer their time to teach other women in the church tailoring skills as well as providing them with emotional support. They also use their time to sew clothes and school uniforms for many of the highly vulnerable children who come to elementary school at the church. This hard working, generous spirit is seen in so many places along the refugee highway and it is a great inspiration for us at IAFR.

IAFR has been serving people in Dzaleka Refugee Camp since 2009. About 50,000 people (mostly women and children) have found temporary refuge here from war, persecution, and gross violations of human rights.
We visit Dzaleka 2-3 times annually, during which time this blog is most active.
Visit the Dzaleka page on the IAFR.org website to learn more!
We partner with There Is Hope - a local Christian agency founded by a former refugee serving people in the camp and surrounding host community. We also partner directly with refugee churches in the camp.
