Union of Welsh Independent Churches (UWI) raise over £156,000 for projects in Madagascar.
As part of their 2018-9 appeal and to celebrate their bicentenary, UWI raised funds for four projects in Madagascar to renew their friendship.
The Big Bicentenary in 2018-19 brought together Malagasy and Welsh people, once again, who celebrated together both in Madagascar and in Wales through theatre, dance, music and services of thanksgiving. Old memories were rekindled and new friendships were born. Growing out of these celebrations was a renewed and strong sense of solidarity between the Welsh and the Malagasy. A hugely successful fundraising appeal was run by the Union of Welsh Independent Churches and an amazing total of £156,000 was the result. Money for Madagascar is delighted to have the privilege of managing these grants on behalf of the UWI.
After the appeal closed and the grants were finalized, MfM arranged for four projects to write bids for how the money would be used. MfM will be managing these projects over the next 1-3 years and will be reporting regularly on how the funding is helping, with news and updates about the incredible difference that is being made by the generous gifts from Welsh Independent Churches.
