MfM makes a big splash!

Guided by a Malagasy lemur

On Sunday the 14th of July 70 adults, 16 children and 4 dogs gathered from across Britain to take wild wade in aid of destitute and vulnerable children in Madagascar. 

MfM's Development Office and Trustees wade into the waves.

Thanks to the 'Queen's Guide' 100 MfM supporters safely negotiated 9 miles of Morecambe Bay's infamous sinking sands. 

Thanks to your support our wade looks set to raise enough funds to build 2 new classrooms in Ambohidava. Last year over 100 children from 5 villages were risking their lives to wade to school across a flood plain. In 2012 MfM supported villagers to build the first 3 classrooms of a new secondary school within safe walking distance for their children. With funds raised from the MfM wild wade we should be able to complete the school building so that when school starts back in October no children will need to risk their lives wading across a flood plain to try to get to school.

Instead they will have a secondary school within safe reach of their homes. 

Happy students at the new Ambohidava CEG school
