Personal message

Heston Hadji, who I've known for 10 years, recently told me what he and his wife, Charity, were doing in Malawi...

They started an orphanage in their home!  Helped by family and friends. 

In 2017 Heston and Charity, parents to Francis (10) and Grace (6), chose to take in two parentless children and Yankho Founation (undergoing registration)  begun. 

They now care for 34 children below the age of 6 and 17 children who attend school. All the children have lost their parents to HIV.

Our previous Buddy Campaign helped Heston return from SA to Charity in Malawi with a sewing machine and fabric.  THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO DONATED.  Take a look at the photo, how cute the children look in their new clothes! 


Only 7 of the 17 school-going children have uniforms. Heston and Charity are sure that all will have uniforms in the next 3 months.  As soon as harvesting begins on their onion crop the uniforms can be bought.  Heston is a brilliant gardener! 

Let's raise the money for their onion crop.  Only R3 000 is needed to get started.  Anything extra will go towards food. 

And if anyone in Cape Town has fabric or cotton to donate please contact me, I can send it up to Malawi in a taxi.  

 Let's do this!  No donation too small ;)
