We want to express our sincere thanks to you for your interest and support of Creative Global Relief (CGR) and the work that God is doing in the country of Malawi, Africa.


We are amazed by their warm and generous spirit in spite of extreme poverty. We can understand why Malawi is called “the warm heart of Africa.” For this reason, we made a commitment to do whatever we can to help the people of Malawi help themselves.


In our search for practical ways to accomplish this, we learned about foot-powered water pumps. Using these pumps makes it easier to irrigate gardens, thus allowing for more and larger harvests. CGR has purchased and distributed over 100 of these pumps. It has been so rewarding to see their flourishing gardens. We are pleased to see the enthusiasm of the villagers who are now able to provide healthy food for their families, sometimes having extra to sell and share with the elderly and sick. This is often their only income.


We recognize that education is the key to a brighter future for these people. Many of the children cannot attend school because their parents are unable to pay the required tuition, buy the needed clothes or school supplies. CGR has started a Child Sponsorship Program to provide support and hope for a better future for these children and their families.


This website provides information explaining how you can be part of what God is doing through these and other CGR projects.
