Union of Welsh Independents (UWI) is currently raising funds for UK-based charity Money for Madagascar (MfM)’s emergency appeal, as a developing food crisis in Southern Madagascar which is facing its worst drought in 40 years, has pushed over a million people to starvation. For its Bicentenary Appeal 2018-2019, UWI had raised over £156,000 to support several projects in Madagascar, an island where two Welsh missionaries were sent by the London Missionary Society (LMS) over 200 years ago.

MfM’s famine feeding programme is run in partnership with ALT MG (Andry Lalana Toahana), a reputable Malagasy NGO who has run food security, education and emergency feeding projects in the South for over a decade. To date, MfM has delivered over £20,000, and is seeking famine aid to continue providing nutritious meals daily to all 650 children in 2 primary schools in Amboasary Sud.
