Sharon volunteered with Open Arms for three months in 2004. Her experience of our work and our people has meant that she has kept us close to her heart ever since.
When he was born his mother died leaving him orphaned. Despite her best efforts Wyson's grandmother was too poor to look after him and so she brought him to Open Arms.
Wyson could receive the medical care, shelter, food and love that he needed to grow up strong and healthy.
When Wyson was 2 years old, nourished and strong, he was ready to return home with his grandmother. Now at home the outreach programme continues to provide support until Wyson is settled, and his family can support themselves.
At Open Arms we work to give orphans in Malawi the chance to grow up within a loving family environment and the security of a home.
