Story

2020 has been a challenge for many of us. During this ‘downtime,’ I decided to put in some training – not always welcome on a cold winters morning -  with the aim of running a half marathon on Saturday March 20th, 2021.

WHY?

Having visited the Molima Home, I was able to see for myself the invaluable part it plays for the twenty four children – mainly orphans - that it supports. The children arrive from often traumatic situations and are welcomed into a family environment, where they receive wholesome food, physical and emotional care and the chance to go to school.

I am hoping to raise money to help cover the cost of: school fees, medical costs, purchasing of crops and possibly converting one of their barns into a common room. This would double up as a place for the children to do their homework, as well as a dining area! Thank you for your support.  



Orfund

Orfund is a charity based in Poole, Dorset helping to meet the needs of children and young people in Dedza in southern Malawi who have no parents - or only one parent or relative who is unable to care for them through poor health or age.

Orfund currently supports 28 children who live at the Molima Family Home. 

We support a number of former residents who are undertaking apprenticeships or in further education to ensure that they acquire the skills they need to live independently as adults.

We also help the primary schools attended by children from Molima, because it's important that children receive the education they need to help them in later life.

We are grateful to all those who help us through sponsoring a child, regular donations or one-off gifts. They enable us to make sure there are sufficient funds each month for the children who live at Molima to have food, clothing, bedding, toiletries, running water, education and training, visits by a nurse and anything else which they need.
