African Mission

Charity description

African Mission logo
African Mission is a registered charity (no: 1099264) supporting medical and educational projects in Africa.

The aim of African Mission is to fight disease and poverty in Africa by supporting education and medical projects. We began in 2003 by supporting the work of Dr Ray Towey MB ChB FRCA. For the last 24 years Dr Towey has dedicated his life to the improvement of health care for the poor in Africa.
 
In 2009 African Mission decided to expand its work and to support a large mission based in rural Zimbabwe - Fatima Mission. The majority of those living within its boundaries are poor subsistence farmers. The priest in overall charge is Fr Jeya who has been at the mission for over 11 years.
 
A particularly vulnerable group living within Fatima Mission are those who are disabled and Fr Jeya was particularly anxious that they should be given the opportunity of an education. The young people live at the mission during term time and attend a nearby school. Of the 21 disabled young people attending school at present, 10 are deaf and unable to speak, 7 are totally blind, 3 are partially sighted and one is physically handicapped.
