Upon the outbreak of the Covid-19 and its first recorded case in Malawi, Operation SAVE ministry had the privilege of providing some of the essential materials recommended as measures for safety from the virus. Operation Save’s Malawi Zone Leaders and volunteers delivered 47 buckets, 15 dozen bars of hand soap and 47 bottles of hand sanitizer. These supplies were made possible through our U.S. contributors that support Operation SAVE throughout the year.
Despite Covid-19, Operation Save has finally completed the building of its’ new Mission House. Even though we were unable to host any US Mission Teams in 2020 due to Covid, Operation Save, Malawi completed the build and dedicated the New Office for our Malawi admin staff. In June 2021, Operation Save is planning it’s first US Mission Trip where US participants will be the first to be housed in our new facility. We thank God for His faithfulness to see this build through and also for all the donors that made this build possible.
Operation Save held its First Annual Save Banquet, Sunday, December 2, 2018 at the beautiful and rustic Rolling Hill Farms in Monroe, North Carolina.
