Malawi is struggling to recover from decades of underdevelopment, corruption and the problem of HIV and AIDS, which claims the lives of tens of thousands every year. In recent years, Malawi has also been hit hard by devastating floods and severe drought which have led to major food shortages and widespread hunger.

We're working with many of the most vulnerable communities to help them grow more food using sustainable organic farming, providing livestock such as goats and cows, and helping communities put in place basic irrigation systems so they can capture and conserve water needed for their crops. We're helping families to set up small businesses and creating savings and loans groups so people have access to money in times of emergencies.

For children with disabilities we’re helping them to enrol in school, paying school fees and providing books, as well as wheelchairs and walking canes so they can gain greater independence. For people with albinism, we’re working to reduce related stigma in their communities, helping them to know their human rights, as well as providing clothing and sunscreen to reduce the risk of skin cancer.
