Upendo Children’s Village grew from the efforts of Bishop Samuel Mkisi and his wife, Florence who started an orphanage in 2012 to care for orphaned and abandoned children in Malawi.
Bishop Samuel remembers many of the children coming to him sick and broken after losing family, “these children were left without any hope whatsoever for their future”. Upendo is now a place of joy and hope for them.
Each week these children are transported to the Church on the Wings in Mzuzu town to take part in the worship service, but safe, reliable transport remains an issue.
Currently the village makes use of an old pick-up that’s on its last legs.
Cross Africa Foundation would like to help give Upendo Children’s Village a minibus.
