Who we support
Children’s Heart Surgery Fund
District 4 Charity 2021 -2022
The Zikomo Trust supports orphans, vulnerable children and the elderly in Malawi. Through education, healthcare and community support we aim to offer them a brighter future.
Our aim is to raise awareness of the problems faceing malawi and to assist in the eareas of education, poverty and healthcare.
From our office base at Chorley, UK we work with Churches and trusted Christian partners across the world and in the UK to relieve suffering through practical aid such as food, clothing, medical supplies and shoebox gifts.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers in Eastern Europe, West Africa and India also share Christ’s love with people in need through a wide range of ministries. These include schools, children’s homes, prison ministry, rehab centres, Bible college, evangelism, healthcare, Christian holidays and clubs for children and training courses such as tailoring projects. We have a network of Charity shops in the UK which help to fund our life changing work.
What does the charity do?
- We recycle your donated personal, educational, vocational and first aid items.
- Goods are sold in our charity shop to raise essential funds; items requested by groups in Africa are sorted and packed ready to send; the rest are recycled.
- We support small scale, sustainable self-help projects with known organisations.
How are we different from other charities?
- Every penny you give goes directly towards sending goods to Africa.
- We are run entirely by volunteers both in the UK & Africa. No salaries or fees are paid.
- Goods are shared amongst those with the greatest need, regardless of faith, religion, social status, ethnicity or gender by local organisers of proven ability and trust. Read about our work in our projects page
