We’ve been dusting off our trainers, stretching our muscles, and warming up for the last few months, so all of us at Open Arms Malawi are excited to announce that the launch of our Miles for Malawi campaign has finally arrived!
With 12,361km (or 18,024,134 steps) to go until we reach Blantyre by the end of June, we’re kicking off this April from our small fundraising office in Harrogate, UK.
Thank you for joining us on what promises to be the walk/run/cycle/swim of a lifetime!
Malawi signs the United Nations Declaration. This commits the country to achieving all eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals by 2015 through the implementation of Malawi’s Growth and Development Strategy (MDGS).
At the turn of the century, one third of all women in Malawi aged 15-19 have already had a child or are currently pregnant, the decline in child mortality under the age of 5 has only modestly declined, and nearly half (49%) of these children are chronically malnourished or stunted in their growth.
Open Arms Infant Homes first opened its doors in 1995, and in 2000, Neville and Rosemarie Bevis arrive in Malawi to become the Directors. Aubrey was one of the first babies referred to their care. There was an urgent need for regular funding and so Open Arms Malawi was registered as a charity in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
