Mission & Charities We Support
Last Christmas, Coventry Vineyard, (including the wonderful Dave & Angela McKay, who ran the London Marathon) raised enough funds to install 76 Bio-Sand Water Filters in Uganda through A Rocha Uganda. The filters have been given to families and this has enabled people to get clean and safe water, reducing water related illnesses like diarrhoea, saving money for families, and reducing the need for firewood. It is estimated that this has transformed the lives of around 1500 people. Thank You CV!
Coventry Vineyard is proud to support The Dalitso Trust. "The Dalitso Trust exists to teach and equip rural Malawians in order that they be empowered to lift themselves and each other out of poverty."
With over 10 years experience of working in Malawi, the Trust has established a core focus of 3 main working areas:
Health - holistic and preventative health care taught to families, carried out by local Malawian volunteers who educate and build people up socially, mentally, spiritually and physically, using CHE network materials.
Leaders - train and equipping local Christian leaders by providing teaching classes, discussion groups and one to one tutoring, through the "Follow Me" course
Play - demonstrating and teaching educational play to local parents and their children, through "Happy Faces".
If you would like to know more or find out about how you can support the Dalitso trust then visit the Dalitso website here.

We love to support Dalitso by praying for them regularly. You, too, can help. Here are some things they have asked us to pray for this year:
Love the One (India)
In October 2014, Nick & Vicki, with their family, visited Love the One in Berhampur, Odisha, India.
Love the One exists to provide poor and orphaned children with free medical care.
Headed up by Dr Mary Cusack and Dr Catherine Morris they are passionate about seeing childrens’ lives transformed, and allowing them to regain their childhood. Not only do they treat their illnesses, but they also provide love, counsel and stand up on behalf of these children so that they don’t just exist, but that they live life to the full.
