Zomba Connectors

In the city of Zomba, Malawi, a Connectors group has been created to offer kindness and support to older generations. The group’s coordinator Suzy said she wanted to establish the group because many of the older people where she lives are living alone with no or limited contact to family, friends, or neighbours. On their first day, this group of volunteers managed to visit 20 people and spent time chatting to them and asking them about their needs. One lady said it was the first time she had been visited by anyone in over four years. Suzy and her friends aim to visit each person twice a month going forwards.
