We're proud to be involved with
the Lifeline Fund
Naturally, at CoffeeAid Ltd our mission is to provide all our customers with high quality coffee machines and consumables at the most competitive price. Having achieved this, we then donate 10% of our revenue to the Lifeline Fund, which brings much needed relief to orphaned and abandoned children in Malawi. What's more, the Fund operates with zero overheads, so every penny of our donation goes direct to the point of need.
Bringing hope to hundreds of orphans
While visiting friends in Malawi in 1998, John Searle saw at first hand the desperate need that threatens so many orphans there, and in June 1999 he founded the Lifeline Fund. Since then, donations have been put to very good use in bringing relief to the poverty - and making a real difference to the children's lives. From building schools to providing healthcare and training, the programme has brought hope and happiness to many.
- The Lifeline Fund have built a village for the care of orphans at Namisu, near Blantyre. The orphanage is home to 80 children, and another 320 benefit from day care. The village provides healthcare, schooling, agriculture and vocational training.
- Further schools have been built, including one at Namarita, near Zomba, where no educational facilities had ever existed. As many as 385 pupils enjoy these facilities, and a further 100 children benefit from a thriving nursery school.
- Lifeline currently build a new day care centre every 6 weeks. These centres care for hundreds more orphans, providing food, healthcare and clothing as well as teaching them skills such as growing their own vegetables.
- Under their orphan scholarship scheme, young people are studying agriculture and irrigation at Malawi University, while others undertake training in nursing, teaching and various trades.
These are just some of the projects Lifeline have been able to achieve since 1999. To find out more about the Lifeline Fund, click here to view our slideshow or contact John Searle on 01223 276710.
