Our Work in Africa

In 1997 our founder, Don Smith, became concerned with reports of food shortages and malnutrition in several African countries; problems that occur on a yearly basis. Don was moved to see if he could help in some small way. He felt giving food or money certainly helped in an immediate crisis, but did little, if anything, to solve a continuing problem. Don soon made a trip to 1 of the poorest African countries called Malawi, and then to Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique. In every country, the conditions were the same. Plenty of good farmland and a very willing work force. Water sources were often adequate from rivers and streams and wells could be bored or hand dug. The problem was getting the water to the land. Rainfall, if any, came in a 2/3-month period; sometimes too much, sometimes too little, sometimes not at all or at the wrong time. The climate was perfect for 2 or 3 crops a year if the land could be built up with fertilizer and irrigated. Don told his employees about the problem and what willing wonderful workers the Africans were and that all they needed was a little help to solve their own problem. They appreciated charity but really wanted and needed tools, pipes, pumps, fertilizer, and the know-how so they could work and support themselves and their families. Several Allied employees volunteered to go to Africa at their own expense to work with no pay to help and to teach them how to irrigate their fields and install and repair equipment. Allied Waterproofing supplied the equipment. Those living in Africa supplied the labor. This program has been so successful that it has developed into not only food production, but also classes in the villages taught by local volunteers in reading, sanitation, family planning, sewing, knitting, and proper farming methods.

This humanitarian work, sponsored by Allied for more than 13 years now, is primarily in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zambia. Most of the work takes place in the very poor villages where there are yearly shortages of food. Many people, including orphans and crippled and elderly individuals live in these villages and are dying by the thousands due to malnutrition and various diseases such as AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, polio, and many other diseases and infections brought on by poverty, lack of education, and little or no medical care. We sponsor food donations, install irrigation equipment, teach the village dwellers how to read, and teach mothers proper nutrition, sanitation, and birth control. Many lives are being saved, poor people are being fed, children and adults are learning to read, elderly people are being cared for, and orphanages are being supported. A share of all Allied's profits from all work we do, approximately 10%, goes to sponsoring this work. Don has personally been to these countries many times over the years and has witnessed firsthand the terrible conditions and the wonderful work that is being done by the local people with our supporting help. It has been his experience that these people are appreciative, loving, and kind. They use the opportunity that we can give them to better their own lives and help themselves, their families, and all the people in their villages.
