Even during a pandemic, our supporters never fail to amaze us with their generosity and, indeed, creativity. Simon Pimm and Marc Stewardson are two such fundraisers who have set themselves a fantastic, challenging adventure - to walk from Victoria Falls in Zambia to Lake Malawi in Malawi while raising much needed funds for some fantastic causes.
It has undoubtedly been a year like no other and we are beyond grateful to you for your support and our wonderful team in Malawi for their dedication and commitment. As we look back on 2020, we do so with gratitude while wishing you and your loved ones a relaxing and peaceful Christmas period.
‘We may be small, but we have a mighty impact. We don’t grab the headlines, but that doesn’t bother us. We’re on the frontlines helping to empower people all over the world to fight back against coronavirus and against poverty.’ Small International Development Charities Network.
Mussa’s home village, houses one of our community owned nurseries and feeding stations. When he returns home, Mussa will be able to attend for a daily meal of protein-rich porridge, early education and a secure place to learn. His development will include sensory skills, basic hygiene and socialisation with his peers.
“For children in the low-income countries, early learning is a springboard allowing them to catch up with their more privileged peers. Preschool education gives them more chances to do well in primary school later, continue through secondary school, and eventually find work with a better pay”. Global Partnership for Education. At Open Arms, we believe the same.
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.
