Frannie’s Chapel Update

The Hands and Hearts for Africa (HAHFA) team is so very grateful for the support provided to our partners in Malawi over the past year.  This support has led to the building of “Frannie’s Chapel” in memory of our dear friend and co-founder, Fran Gray.  This chapel, the first of its’ kind in the prison system in Malawi, was built at Mzuzu Prison that currently houses 800 inmates.  It will serve as a place of worship for about 250 people – a safe place for men and women of all faiths to gather and worship together.  The project was overseen by our long-time partner Rodrick Zalimba, Executive Director of Prison Fellowship Malawi.  HAHFA has been supporting Rodrick and his work at PFM for many years, and Frannie and the team have been there several times, visiting prisons and assisting the Halfway House. It was a very special place for Frannie, and we are thrilled that we can honour her and her incredible legacy of faith in this way with your generous help.
