When children are referred to Open Arms, they are welcomed with big smiles, provided with specialist care and attention, and soon become part of the Open Arms family.
Vanessa and Janello, came to Open Arms as babies in 2014, and after successfully moving back home they settled well with their aunt when they turned three years old.
Through the Open Arms Outreach programme, the team have helped combat the early signs of malnutrition and ensure that the girls receive the necessary medicines and food they need for the whole family to stay happy, healthy, and continue to thrive. This help at home has stopped them needing institutionalised care and means that they can continue to live at home with their community.
George Phiri is an incredible little boy who currently lives with his sister in a house built by Open Arms in 2014! Through regular sponsorship, George can attend school, and every year the family receives an agricultural pack to ensure they have food to grow and can use their money to live on. This is the additional help small sponsorship can bring.
Hamisi lives with his brothers and sister and is a shining example of a child reaching their full potential. Through our sponsorship programme, Hamisi regularly attends school and, when at home, sometimes teaches his friends some of the lessons he has learnt that day. His family is supported with the yearly agricultural pack from Open Arms, which means Hamisi doesn't go to school on an empty stomach, and with their regular sponsorship, the family makes sure he has everything he needs for school to help him thrive.
Chisomo Sabati lives with her aunt and her grandmother after her mother sadly passed away when she was born. Chisomo and her family rely heavily on the sponsorship at the moment as their crops have not performed well this year, and without this income, they wouldn’t have enough food to live.
