International Day of Charity

5th September is the International Day of Charity

In 2012, the United Nations designated this day to recognise the efforts of those who take part in charity work and to remind us all of how easy it is to be charitable! With so many great causes out there to get involved in, we know it can be difficult to choose so we thought we would lay out a few stories of hope and progress from Temwa’s projects in Nkhata Bay, northern Malawi, and showcase how easy it is to get involved with Temwa..

Read our about our Managing Director, Jo Hook, and her recent visit to our projects in Nkhata Bay in her blog here

Discover the story of John Chirwa, one of Temwa’s longest standing beneficiaries, and how he has worked to combat deforestation in his local community with Temwa’s help

Learn about Aless who is benefiting from Temwa’s Mobile Voluntary Counselling and Testing initiative, supporting her to live positively with HIV

Find out about Temwa’s education projects, like this example highlighting Anna Kamanga, a teacher who gained her qualifications with the support of Temwa and our partner, the Nick Webber Trust

So, this International Day of Charity, why not get involved with our work?

You might fancy getting sponsored to train up and battle with a former Olympic wrestler at the Rock N Rumble

Put your endurance to the test in the Brek Trek 25

Run 5 or 10k for us in Bristol’s MoRun in the amazing surroundings of the Ashton Court Estate – there’s even a MiniMo run for the kids to get involved too

Our Christmas Party will take place against the backdrop of the beautiful Circomedia church in Bristol. There will be a delicious three-course meal, bubbles on arrival, aerial performances, DJs until 1am, and a last minute Christmas shopping auction!
