The children cared for by Open Arms Malawi are fortunate to have many friends in Holland since 2003.

The funds they raise has made a real and tangible difference to many young lives. If you want to make a difference and would like to make a donation in Holland then please contact Carlijn Hooijmans ( who will be delighted to help make it happen.

Open Arms is a registered “institution of general benefit” or ANBI: Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling in the Netherlands (RSIN: Open Arms 823831759), enabling some tax advantages for Dutch Donors. 

For example, if in a calendar year the sum of someone’s gifts to ANBIs exceeds 1% of the threshold income, the excess (with a maximum of 10% of that income) is deductible income. In addition, an ANBI is also exempted from inheritance tax and gift tax on inheritances and gifts it receives. The Dutch Tax office recently decided that all information about functioning of charities should be available via the internet. 

Open Arms adheres to the new rules and all required information e.g. contact information, policy, financial data, current activities.

Your donation will help children in Malawi grow up healthy with the love of a family


Designed to be kind. Proud to support Open Arms Malawi.
