Hadija Saiti was welcomed at Open Arms Mangochi on 2 June, 2017 when she weighed just 4.5 kg. She was very sick and her mother had just passed away. Following care and support at Open Arms, she is now healthy enough to make the big move home with her guardian!
We're building on the fabulous work that we have done with supporters across Scotland to benefit as many children in Malawi as possible. You can join us! We need your help to create a supporter group to champion our work and secure much needed support for our projects in Malawi this year. Based outside of Scotland?
