Paul and Paula McNeill use their nonprofit, Mission McNeill, to help improve the lives of the children and adults who are in need in underdeveloped areas by providing them with access to basic needs. With the help of donors, they raise funds every year for on-site projects.

Through conversations with the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth missioned in Botswana, they identified multiple projects and beneficiaries at SCN ministries. Nine projects were identified in Metsimotlhabe, Lobatse, Kanye, Tsholamosese and Good Hope and were implemented in August 2019.

“Mission McNeill did a wonderful job for the needy people and especially children of Botswana. May God continue to bless them and their generous service. Thank you to the McNeills. We are deeply grateful to you,” says Sister Sunila.

Projects completed:

  • Treadmill machine for the patients and staff’s welfare in Pabalelong Hospice
  • Backpack with a medical kit for the home care volunteers of Pabalelong Hospice
  • Kitchen utensils for Kamogelo and orphan care center, Tsholamosese
  • Uniform set for 40 children in Metsimotlhabe preschool
  • A water tank with water for one year for a family with many children in the remote village of Metsimotlhabe
  • Copying machine for a parish school in Good Hope
  • Shade for the playground in St. Mary’s Preschool, Lobatse
  • A water tank with the connections for Lobatse primary school
  • Uniforms for 25 children at Ranaka Junior Secondary School near Kanye
