Weʼre raising £5,000 to help support orphans and the very elderly in rural Malawi who have lost their families through Malaria and HIV/AIDS- they have nothing.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This is an extremely vulnerable group of 42 Malawians who barely survive- living on handouts from the local villagers who themselves have very little. It’s a group of orphans and very elderly people who have lost their families. Through Just Giving we have been able to buy the elderly people a mattress and a blanket, maize for many months for the whole group but, which has now run out. The few who had tiny hand-built homes have recently lost them due to the recent storms. We are hoping to raise enough to rebuild their homes, buy livestock and tools so that they can become self-sufficient, which they would much prefer due to their wonderful dignity, even under such hardship.
