Support of WFWP’s community service project at Gartlea Garden, Airdrie, North Lanarkshire

Sunrise Africa Relief was very happy to support the Women’s Federation for World Peace in their community service project in Airdrie Scotland on the 20th of April 2022.

The grant of £120 helped towards the purchase of plants and supplies on the day.

The WFWP representatives repainted the outdoor sun lounger and replanted the front flower beds at the Retirement Home, Gartlea Gardens, Airdrie.

The whole project was well received by management and the residents.
Sunrise Africa Relief looks forward to partner with WFWP Scotland on future projects both here in Scotland and Africa.

Chess sponsorship in Zambia

Mr Schneider a former missionary to Zambia recently visited his mission country again and could hold a number of chess training workshops for teachers. He is working with the Ministry of Sport of Zambia and Sunrise Africa Relief could help sponsor the purchase of chess sets to be donated to schools. Mr Schneider is a credited teacher of chess and works with the chess federation of Germany.

The Zambia chess federation is very grateful for his workshops and to bring an international perspective to the local chess scene. The workshops will be held around the country in order to broaden the attendance. Sunrise Africa Relief wishes all participants a successful training.

Sunrise Africa Relief in partnership with WFWP-ZAMBIA COVID 19 pandemic response

In the period of July – August 2020, Zambia saw a high rise in the cases of Covid 19 infections. Responding to this, Sunrise Africa Relief could support our partners in Zambia the WFWP and donate assorted anti Covid 19 materials consisting of washing buckets, masks, hand sanitizers and liquid soap to Kanyama level 1 Hospital on 28 August 2020. The hospital is Lusaka’s busiest suburban hospital. 

The event was officiated by the area member of parliament who is also the Minister for Gender, Honorable Elizabeth Phiri MP and the Hospital Administrator, Dr Mbewe.  The event was also well covered by various media groups (1 national station and 3 private TV stations) and fully reported on the evening news bulletin of one radio station and one TV station. The Times of Zambia a nationwide paper close to the Government carried a picture of the handover on its edition of the following day.

1,000 mile run for Sunrise Africa Relief – Update

Robert Williamson one of the charity Trustees visited Zambia at the beginning of March 2020 and was able to purchase the two electric grinding machines for Sandwe village. We are grateful to SARO AGRO Industrial Ltd for giving a discount on the machines.

Mr Williamson also met with Mr Milind Amin, the Senior General Manager of the company and he said that his company will also help to install the machines and  provide some training to the villager who will be handling the machines.

We are now waiting for the rainy season to finish and for the national electric company to complete the connection of the village to the national grid later this year.

Presently this part of Zambia has experienced heavy flooding and the dirt road is inaccessible.

Sunrise Africa Relief will continue to give updates on this project as the year progresses.

1,000 mile run for Sunrise Africa Relief

This year Sunrise Africa Relief set the challenge to purchase and install a grinding mill in the village of Sandwe, Zambia to be completed during the year of 2020.

The total cost of the project is in the region of $5,500 which was raised online through donations given on the Facebook platform through the year.

In exchange for donations given Stephan Williamson set the challenge to run 1,000 miles before the year ended which he successfully achieved.

It is hoped that the installation of the mill will be completed during the year of 2020 as the village is due to be connected to the national electricity grid within the next 10 months.

The Trustees would like to thank all those who donated to this project from around the world and for those who took the time to share the facebook platform also around the globe.

2019 Christmas Lunch

On Thursday 19 December Sunrise Africa Relief held our annual Christmas lunch at the Drouthy Fox in Dunfermline. In total 11 people attended this year, including Margaret and Ann our charity knitting ladies from Dunfermline! The food – cooked by a South African chef – was fantastic and a good time was had by all. See photos and a video below.

Donation of knitting to Matero hospital

In July 2019 charity trustee Robert Williamson visited Zambia and took some knitting donated by a lady who knits for the charity in Dunfermline. These knittings are for babies born prematurely and because they are made from pure wool provide wonderful warmth in the winter season. Many of the young mothers come from desperately poor backgrounds and cannot afford quality clothing for their children.

Rev. David Phiri of the FFWPU movement who lives on the outskirts of Lusaka and his wife reported that their youngest boy had fallen and knocked over a container of scalding water, was badly burnt and rushed to Matero hospital in Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia. He was admitted for seven days, but has since made a full recovery. His parents told me that they were really grateful for the nursing staff at the hospital and I suggested that our charity could help them to make a small appreciation by donating these baby woollen items.

We visited the hospital and met the staff and nurses with a presentation of the baby knitting’s. The nurses were so grateful as they had just had some recent births from a number of very poor mothers and that the donations would be a great help indeed!

I felt that even a small donation can go along way in relieving hardship and I hope that here at Sunrise Africa Relief we can continue to do small things which can grow into big things!

On behalf of the charity we wish all the staff well at Matero hospital and the young mothers and babies as well.

Fundraising at Dunfermline Gala 2019

At the annual Dunfermline Gala Day on the 22nd June 2019 six volunteers took part in a street fundraising event. In just under four hours £275 was raised through direct bucket donations and other donations given in the evening.

It was wonderful to see the response from the community and with the beautiful weather it was a very positive day.

Many donors remembered the charity from last year and it is hoped that the event will become a regular annual event.

The charity would like to thank the Dunfermline community for their generous support. The trustees also would like to thank the volunteers who took time out from their busy schedules to participate in the event.
