Another fun and successful event for the Malawi Water Project occurred on November 3rd, 2018. With great music coordinated by our musical director Louise Forsyth, we enjoyed an evening filled with a variety of musical entertainment.
The Spirit Singers entertained us with a variety of uplifting songs and several soloists in the group performed passionate selections.
Our musical performers included renowned Calgary folk singer Barry Luft and a new a cappella group on the Calgary music scene known as Conchord.
The food, wine and silent auction provided a fun time during intermission. Thank you to Darlene Kemp and Bernadette O’Connor for their work on the silent auction. The food and hall arrangement done by Nancy Swerhun, Andrea Collins and Teana Pickles couldn’t have been better.
The wine and beverages were well tended by Onyema, Tito and Craig.
Our volunteers did a fantastic job explaining the functioning of the biosand water filter and taking donations from all of our faithful supporters.
Gerry Simon kept things moving as our Master of Ceremonies and Sarah Falconer who has been our country manager in Malawi for the past two and a half years provided us with an explanation of the hardships and joys of living in a rural village in Malawi.

Thank you to all of the performers, volunteers and donors who supported this event. The support means such a great deal to the families who benefit from clean water which reduces illness and improves productivity and enjoyment of life for thousands of villagers living in rural Malawi.
