NGO led by Drew prof. brings clean water to rural Africa

WorldHope Corps, Inc. is the NGO I started and volunteer for in Malawi. Its local ministry partner is the Mzuzu Circuit of the United Methodist Church which is starting a new ShalomZone focused on orphan care and village wells.

Drew student interns, Claire Colcord and Christian Ciabonu, are currently in Malawi assisting the Shalom team start the new Community of Shalom.

Zowe and Euthini villages are part of the Mzuzu circuit of the UMC.

Mike Bond, one of the team members on a recent WorldHope Corps mission trip to Malawi, is funding a new village well and is profiled and photographed breaking ground with villagers.
