Shine Relief Trust

Registered Charity Number 1127090

Our mission is simple - to relieve the suffering of orphans, widows and vulnerable children in one of the poorest districts of Southern Malawi, through the provision of food, healthcare, shelter and education.

We feed 300 - 400 children every school day through Shine Centre and 2 Community Feeding Programmes and currently care for 8 families in the community and 12- 16 students at the local Secondary and Boarding Schools.

Activities at Shine Village Centre provide practical life-skills for the whole community. Shine helps to raise children's health awareness, teaching about the dangers of early pregnancy and HIV/Aids transmission, whilst helping families receive vital healthcare otherwise inaccessible to them.

Plans are under way to provide accommodation at Shine Village for those who are the most vulnerable.

Why Malawi?

50% of the population are children. One million are orphans.

Orphaned children have little support from the state leaving them open to abuse. Child marriage is a big problem with more than 50% of girls marrying by the age of 18, some are as young as 12 years old. Preventable and curable diseases still continue to take lives every day, children suffer due to the lack food and shelter which effects their health and education. Most do not go on to Secondary school.

We firmly believe such things should not continue when we have the resources and a voice to do something about it!

We are doing something and encouraging supporters from across the country to help.

Our aim is to help build vibrant, healthy communities who minister to the most vulnerable providing continuity of care and education to orphaned children. Shine works to empower women and children, raising awareness of children's rights and tackling issues of injustice, exploitation and extreme poverty. This is a valuable part of the orphan care support network which is slowly growing in an area desperately in need of hope and God's love; particularly for children traumatised by the loss of parents or loved ones, who are living with the effects of disease and terminal illness and the daily challenges of extreme poverty.

Everyone can do something!
