Open Arms USA

At Open Arms we believe that every child has the right to survival and development. We provide essential care for Malawi's orphaned and abandoned children, giving them the chance to achieve their potential within the love and security of a home.

Can you support our coronavirus emergency appeal?

Following medical advice, we have locked down our infant homes to reduce risks to our children and staff.  As Malawi starts to shut down services, we cannot simply close our homes but we will limit movement around them as much as possible.

So far the team have carried out training on hand washing, social distancing and staying safe.  They have set up new hand washing stations at both homes and stopped visitors.

Many of our children have underlying heath conditions, are malnourished and HIV positive, putting them at risk.  The recommendation from our medical experts is that prevention is the best action and we are following their advice.

About us

Open Arms Infant Homes Malawi, USA was founded as a non-profit corporation 501 (C) (3) in 2004 in order to act as a USA fundraising arm to support the work of Open Arms Infant Homes.

Open Arms Infant Homes Malawi, USA is governed separately by a Board of Directors in the USA and communicates on a regular basis with Open Arms Infant Homes.

Donations to Open Arms Infant Homes, when sent via Open Arms USA, qualify for current 501(C) (3) tax deductions and all donations receive an Open Arms USA receipt that can also be used for tax purposes.

All support work in the USA is done on an entirely voluntary basis so that USA overheads are kept to a minimum. Almost all overhead costs that are incurred are donated individually by members of the Board.

This means that Funds collected in the USA, specifically for Open Arms in Malawi, are transferred directly to Open Arms Malawi without any deductions at Open Arms Infant Home Malawi, USA. So every cent of your donation reaches the children in Malawi.
