Sandra's story

Working alongside local churches in Malawi gave Tearfund supporter Sandra Giles a heart for people in poverty.

Working alongside local churches in Malawi gave Tearfund supporter Sandra Giles a heart for people in poverty.

Before her death in February 2014, Sandra made several visits to Malawi with a team from St Peter’s Baptist Church in Worcester, which had links with Chikondi Baptist in Lilongwe.

With husband Rob, Sandra was involved in church-planting in Malawi and went on to support school sponsorship, mirco-loan schemes, adult literacy, a primary school and rural clinic.

Rob says, ‘Experiencing life in an extremely poor country greatly enhanced our understanding of people’s needs.

'We know of the valuable work Tearfund does in countries like Malawi. Sandra was very happy to leave a legacy in her will knowing it will be put to good use.’
