Buy some Fruit Trees for Mother’s Day – £10 for 4 fruit tree saplings

Sarah’s 25/03/22

£10 will buy 4 fruit tree saplings planting a sustainable future for people and planet. We have already sent money and saplings have been planted but we want to provide the hundreds of orphans and other vulnerable children at The Foundation with food for their future, providing employment and an income for The Foundation. We want children to have the nutrition they need and not to be hungry. The end goal is for self-sufficiency. Planting hundreds of tree saplings will help prevent soil erosion and help with climate change.

contact_us@changinglivesmalawi.com and we can send an email to you to forward or send the e-gift straight to the recipient. Thank you for helping us continue Changing Lives Malawi, Sarah x

Happy Mother’s Day

Spring has sprung and there’s the promise of warmer weather right around the corner. Mother’s Day is a week on Sunday, 27th March.

This is just a little reminder that we are still planting a sustainable future for the hundreds of orphans and other vulnerable children supported by The Foundation.

So how about buying a feel good gift for your mum? Fruit tree saplings will provide future food, an income and jobs at The Foundation and of course planting more trees is what the planet needs. Buying seeds will ensure that the children can grow more vegetables to eat at the weekly feeding programme. Or would you like to provide some blankets for children who are sleeping on the floor and covering themselves in rags at night. All these things are desperately needed and will be a huge help if you could buy a virtual gift.

5 blankets costs £25, seeds can be bought in any amount starting at £10, and fruit tree saplings can be bought in any amount starting at £10 for 4 saplings. If you think of anything else you’d like to contribute to then I can easily make up a picture and email it to you. contact_us@changinglivesmalawi.com Thanks for reading and considering these alternative gifts for Mother’s Day, Sarah x

Planting a Sustainable Future for People & Planet & also helping those affected by the recent hailstorm

Sarah’s blog 14/2/22

There is an orchard at the Foundation with lots of fruit tree saplings. The children have been caring for the saplings by weeding and watering them.

People have generously donated money to buy more fruit tree saplings and yesterday over 100 were planted. These will give future food for the children and hopefully be a source of income too for the Foundation from selling surplus fruit. This will help towards their end goal…self-sufficiency.

Obviously tree planting is very important for the planet and the hope is that the trees will also help in the rainy season by providing protection for the crops from the wind and rain.

The first photos are from a few months ago and the rest are from planting the saplings yesterday before heavy rain storm in the afternoon.

Also, a few weeks ago we had an appeal for a few families whose houses had been damaged in the wind and hailstorm. Thank you to the people who had contributed to that appeal. I’d like to thank the people who donate clothes etc to us as these people were given gifts yesterday for which they were very thankful.

They received clothes and shoes, maize and walking sticks for the very elderly. They were also gifted fruit tree saplings to plant near their homes. The photos of the recipients of these gifts are after the photos of planting the fruit tree saplings. Hope you enjoy the photos and, as always, if you want to get in touch it’s contact_us@changinglivesmalawi.com thanks for reading, Sarah x
