About the Foundation

The Malawi Mission Work Team (MMWT) Foundation supports Embangweni Hospital in Malawi from a Christian perspective of charity. Since 2006, a new renovation project has been carried out every year. Each project involves thorough renovation or, if necessary, rebuilding and expansion of a section of the hospital. In recent years, the pediatric ward, men’s and women’s wards, maternity wards, and the surgical department with a burns unit have been completely renovated.

All projects are carried out by Malawian workers who use materials sourced locally. Mr. Piet du Plessis oversees the projects. He resides in Embangweni with his wife Estelle and is responsible, on behalf of the MMWT Foundation, for procuring materials, supervising workers, and ensuring the technical correctness of the project execution. Each year, the projects are inspected by several board members of MMWT.

All board members of MMWT work pro bono, and Piet receives only a modest volunteer allowance. Consequently, the foundation’s costs are minimal. The projects are funded through private and corporate donations to the foundation. Additionally, MMWT sends out teams to adopt (part of) projects.
