Emilies Charities

Investing in children's futures

Malawi

Malawi is one of the ten poorest countries in the world; more than half the population are illiterate and life expectancy is around 40 years, with a high rate of infant mortality. With the increased incidence of HIV/AIDS, it is estimated that over half a million children are orphans as a result.

Mzuzu is a large town in an area where there are no facilities or care provisions for destitute children. Emilie’s Charities sponsored a girl from the age of nine to nineteen in a village being run by SOS Children. Our sponsorship contributed to the costs of her living and education. In 2019 we will being sponsorship of a girl from another village.

Additionally we bought a four way (two boys and two girls) composting toilet for a school near Lilongwe.
