The Rossall Outreach team have recently organised a donation of new, old stock uniform, from Rosshop to be sent to an orphanage in Malawi.
The Friends of Mulanje are an organisation set up in the year 2000 and it now runs 14 centres across the rural Mulanje district of Malawi, distributing 1.1 million meals a year.
As well as this, the charity also operates medical and outreach clinics, including a HIV treatment centre providing assistance to local hospitals.
The charity also runs a secondary school for over 400 pupils and a skills-based school for tailoring and computing. As well as this, they help children access safe education by fixing or rebuilding old school buildings; supplying uniforms, textbooks and shoes, and by helping to fund children into higher education.
The school established a link with this charity when a group of students visited the Nansomba Project, one of the orphanages, in 2010 as part of their World Challenge expedition.
This year we have been able to send 10 boxes of uniform to the children in order to help them go to school and we hope to further strengthen this link in the future.
