Hello! My name is Nicole Loughlin, a 22-year-old from Ireland! Throughout the past year I have visited Malawi three times. The culture, the people and their kindness, along with my drive to make a difference and combat the developing/developed divide continues to lure me back to the ‘Warm heart of Africa’.
Support Open Arms through a six-day bicycle ride through the spectacular landscape of Malawi. On your journey, not only will you experience rural Malawi but you will have a chance to visit some of our projects.
It was a great pleasure to welcome Ashville College back to Open Arms this summer. A packed itinerary saw them helping in the Blantyre infant home playing with the children and getting to know more about what we do.
When Mayankho returned home his father thanked Open Arms and commented with tears in his eyes that “he couldn’t believe that Mayankho was not only alive but big and strong too.” After a short stay at our infant home, once he was well enough, he moved back to his village, right in between Chickwawa and Nsanje, to live with his aunt. She was also caring for his older sister and his father lived in the same village supporting the family with his vegetable sales.
