The third phase of care that we can provide with your help is our foster house programme.
Our foster houses are situated within medium density areas of Blantyre City. The houses, owned by Open Arms, are clustered reasonably near to each other and are staffed by a House Mother and Assistant House Mother appointed from within the main Infant Home. The Mothers therefore will have known the children from the very early stages of development. The children go to local schools and to all intents and purposes live in the foster houses as regular families.
We have 24 children in 5 foster houses at the moment, living as normal a life as possible, going to community schools making friends and even going on holiday
