Joshua Orphanage

Elmhurst School for Boys

19th January 2015 | Headmaster's Blog

As you all know the Joshua Orphanage in Malawi is our target charity.

In assembly this morning we spoke about the awful cyclones that have hit Malawi, causing terrible flooding.

The country was caught between two cyclones and experienced non-stop heavy rain for over 72 hours!

Over 200,000 people have been displaced and nearly 200 people have lost their lives.

A third of the country has been declared a ‘disaster zone’.

The communities that Joshua support on the outskirts of Blantyre have been particularly badly affected. Over 200 displaced families are taking refuge in the Mitsidi Primary School, which is one of the schools run by Joshua.

Thanks to the recent Carol Concert collection and Charity Fair we have made a donation of £388 today. It is amazing how this money can help.

£5.00 – buys 50 metre sheets which can cover collapsed walls or roofs

£7.00 – buys warm blankets

£15.00 – buys 5 iron sheets to cover collapsed walls or roofs until the storms have passed.

The EFA will be arranging a coffee/cake morning to raise some additional funds and the boys throughout the school are looking at other ways in which “The Elmhurst Community” can help Joshua in this time of need.

Please let us know if you have any ideas as to how you can help.
