Orfund - Child sponsorship

Secure the future of a child

You truly can make a difference to a child’s life and secure a future for them at Molima Family Home through monthly sponsorship. Any monthly amount is important to us.

It costs at least £25 per month to provide care for an individual child at the Molima Family Home. Food costs have increased significantly and inflation has averaged at 15.1% over the last 17 years. Although inflation has dropped, the food shortages will incur high costs in 2018. Last year, Molima staff had to buy maize from Zambia.

At the beginning of 2018, there are 5 young people aged 16+. Their futures beyond Molima present an imminent need and challenge as we don’t give up on young people when they are old enough to leave Molima. We support the home to help the family find training, apprenticeships and accommodation for young people. It is the only way they can be sure of a secure future in Malawi.

Your sponsored child receives:

  • Care and accommodation
  • All meals
  • Access to clean water
  • Access to education
  • Healthcare
  • Clothing

We produce an annual letter for sponsors and donors which we can send electronically or by post, and can be accessed on our website. The IT and telephone communication network in Malawi is variable and intermittent, therefore it can be a huge challenge!

In 2017 we made links with and valued help from an International Voluntary Service team in Dedza. They helped to paint Molima Home, give some health sessions to the children and young people and organise some activities. They were also able to assure us that the children are well and happy.
