What's for dinner? Make a Meal with us!

On the 2nd November 2020, we launched our annual Make a Meal Campaign! Each week we have been sharing a different recipe for inspiration, and this week, we've got a Malawian twist on a classic go-to dinner. Have you signed up to take part? Help us fight malnutrition and hunger in Malawi and join our campaign.


Thanks to our friend Enock Bamusi who lives in Glasgow, Scotland, we've got dinner tonight covered!

Simply bake, cook, create a meal, collect a small donation (the cost of a takeaway or meal in a restaurant), and donate the proceeds. We're aiming to raise £3,000 this year to support the cost of food and medical care for our Infant Homes in Blantyre and Mangochi.
