Malawi Government recognizes CARD for its exceptional response to Cyclone Freddy.

On 14th December, we proudly participated in the inaugural Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) Day, hosted by the NGO Regulatory Authority (NGORA). The event was nothing short of inspiring as we seized the opportunity to connect and forge invaluable partnerships with fellow NGOs.

With zeal and dedication, we highlighted our steadfast commitment to aligning our efforts with Malawi 2063 and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs), emphasizing our dedication to a more sustainable and brighter future. The day unfolded under the theme of “A Strong and Vibrant NGO Sector towards Accelerated Implementation for SDGs and Malawi 2063.” It was a celebration of collective dedication and a rallying call for intensified action towards our shared aspirations.

The atmosphere brimmed with enthusiasm, collaboration and a shared vision for a better tomorrow. We are honored to have been a part of this historic day, energized by the prospects it holds for driving positive change in our communities and beyond.

It was a moment of pride to observe that CARD received commendation and acknowledgement as the “Best Cyclone Freddy Response 2023” by Government of Malawi during the Thursday night dinner for Non-Governmental Organizations, hosted by the State President of Republic of Malawi Dr. Lazarus Chakwera at Kamuzu Palace.

Canon Makalande, the former board chair for CARD, emphasized the profound significance of receiving this esteemed honor. "This award holds profound significance for us. It signifies the impactful and indispensable nature of our work." Makalande said.

The recognition serves as a testament to the tireless dedication and unwavering commitment of our team, sparking a renewed sense of purpose and determination.

"Receiving this award acts as a catalyst, propelling us to redouble our commitment and passion in serving the people of Malawi," Makalande added.

This esteemed honor not only acknowledges our past achievements but also propels us towards a future marked by even greater dedication to the well-being and support of our community.

CARD executed the Cyclone Freddy response project, with financial/technical support from various organizations, including Care International Malawi, Christian Blind Mission, Norwegian Church Aid-Dan Church Aid, Christian Aid, Trocaire, Catholic Relief Services, Canadian Food-Grains Bank/Presbyterian World Service.

CARD! Actions that count.
