Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Dzaleka Refugee Camp, Malawi
October 30, 2021
When IAFR began 12 years ago, our first ministry location was the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi. This was made possible through our friendship with Innocent Magambi and There Is Hope, Malawi (TIH). Innocent opened the door to Dzaleka and connected us to two refugee churches in the camp.
Over the years our connections have grown in Dzaleka but our main on the ground partner in Malawi is TIH. Though Innocent has transitioned to a new venture, we continue to walk together with TIH to bring hope to those who have been displaced and those in the villages surrounding the Dzaleka camp. It was a joy to meet with the senior leadership today, to review the work we are doing together, reaffirm our commitment to each other, and to look forward to continued partnership in the future.

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.
