Malawi and OGT Join Hands

Malawi and OGT Join Hands

His Excellency Edward Yakob Sawerengera, who is the Malawi ambassador to the United States, and others from the southeast African nation along with Dr. Joe Mtika, founder of Norfolk Public Schools of Malawi visited OGT on April 25, 2017. OGT has shipped school supplies, humanitarian aid and Mercy Meals to Malawi for distribution by Joe Mtika. Joe was born in Malawi but has resided in Norfolk, NE for several years and founded the school in Malawi to offer education to the underprivileged youth. Sawerengera and those with him were especially impressed with the Orphan Grain Train and Mercy Meals. OGT and Mercy Meals will be aiding Malawi in the future and helping the nation to feed its people given that Malawi is one of the world’s poorest countries. Sawerengera shared that “What the Orphan Grain Train does (is) something that (will benefit Malawi) a lot in terms of the food items, clothing and the medical (equipment).” It was amazing to meet at OGT and see how we can better serve those in need in Malawi.
