Make a MEAL of it

Feeding an orphaned baby costs more than most Malawian families earn.  And sadly many die from malnutrition or grow up to be severely stunted.  At Open Arms, we feed and care for orphaned babies until they are healthy enough to return home.  

You can help!

Make a MEAL to make a difference!

Throughout November, we would like to invite you to host a meal for friends or family in aid of Open Arms Malawi. Simply invite people to your event, collect a small donation (the cost of a takeaway or a meal out) and donate the proceeds. Complete the form below to register your interest and we’ll send you everything you need!

Last year we raised over £3,000, which was enough to buy each of our foster homes a much needed new oven and contribute to their food bills! 

This year, the funds raised will go to provide food and new kitchen equipment in our infant homes so your meal will help give a nutritious meal to a vulnerable baby who really needs it.

With your help, we can really make a MEAL of it!

Wyson’s story

Wyson became an orphan when he was a baby. His grandma couldn’t afford baby milk, so tried to feed him porridge and sugar water. Finally, she found that Open Arms could help.

Wyson was so hungry when he came to Open Arms as a tiny three month old.  Feeds were difficult for him. Over time though, simple bottles of nutritious formula gave him the strength to grow up healthy.  He was reunited with his grandma as a healthy, immunised toddler. And look at him now!

Every month he visits Open Arms and we hear about school and his life at home. He looks so proud in his school jumper! 

His grandma relies on our sponsorship to provide the food he needs to continue to grow and develop, without our help the family would struggle and Wyson's life would be very different.
