Those that are seeking help come to us because the mothers have either died or are too unwell to feed their babies. Hospitals and doctors are referring carers to Mphatso for life-saving baby formula.

 Many babies lives have been saved because of this program.  We support these babies by routinely weighing and supplying baby formula and as they progress maize porridge. It's a difficult task to turn babies away when we are facing financial hurdles. We are currently supporting 100 babies. 

Women's Positive living group 


Many people in Malawi are living with HIV and AIDS. Mphatso Children’s Foundation provides a safe place for those living with this devastating illness to meet on a weekly basis. These gatherings include singing, crafts, sharing a meal together and a real sense of belonging. We also provide finances for on-going treatment and transport for medical care.

We operate 13 Nursery Schools teaching numeracy and literacy to approx. 1000 children daily.

Every child receives a nutritious bowl of porridge each school day.

All our Nursery School's employ local teachers and cooks, providing much needed employment.
