As you know, one of Dr, Gradwell’s passions is supporting the people in the village of Malawi, Africa. He is participating in an exciting challenge and bringing life change to some of the most vulnerable people in the world. Villages in Partnership (VIP), a non-profit working in the remote villages of Malawi, Africa, is hosting its annual Water Walk fundraiser to bring clean water, sanitation facilities, and healthcare to the people of Malawi.
COVID-19 has hit Malawi and it’s more important than ever that we come alongside our brothers and sisters in the villages. They are vulnerable from compromised immune systems, the lack of healthcare facilities and resources, and the inability to wash their hands with soap and water. I am doing this fundraiser with my team as we walk in solidarity with them.
For the past 6 years when my team and I visit the village in Malawi, we have been working in the Maze Mill building that only has electricity to utilize the dental equipment that we brought over the past few years. All of the raised funds will be used to form a medical and dental clinic that will provide more amenities. This is the biggest fundraiser for VIP and I have set a goal to raise $5000 for this incredible cause.
As the villagers prepare to combat this virus, this will help us to better equip them. The Water Walk live stream event is on Saturday, May 22nd from 7 PM – 8:30 PM Eastern. You can watch the event on YouTube and Facebook Live.
WooHoo! With all the generous donations we received for the Water Walk event, Villages in Partnership met their goal! A huge thank you for all your love and support in helping Dr. Gradwell and his passion for the people in Malawi, Africa!
