The quality of life for hundreds of children in Malawi is about to improve thanks to a new program by Prison Fellowship International.
After a year of preparation, a new child sponsorship program has been launched in the African nation, aimed at improving the lives of children who are at risk because one or both of their parents are in prison.
Christian Newswire reports, the program began with the enrollment of 140 children, who will receive food, clothing, access to education, regular medical check-ups, and spiritual and emotional care.
Millions of children around the world have lost one or both parents to imprisonment.
Many live in dire circumstances but Prison Fellowship International works with its affiliates around the world to rescue, restore, and rebuild the lives of poor and vulnerable children of prisoners.
