Team Massif: Beds for FOMO
About Nicolas and Moritz
Moritz and I are two university students. We are studying social sciences : migration and integration.
Since two weeks ago my friend Mo and I are traveling through Malawi, visiting the country but also some projects we heard of and which sounded interesting to us and which we wanted to support. On our first day we had the luck to meet Peter, he is from England and came here with the same purpose.
Now all of us are in Mulanje, a city located in the south of Malawi. Here we found the organisation Fomo (Friends Of Mulanje Orphans), an organisation whos main goal is to support local orphans by giving them a roof over the head and something to eat, but also access to educational and medical facilities.We are currently staying at the Fomo facility, met the founder and other important shareholders of this project to see the situation firsthand.
We both want to support this project, and the main objective for now is to get funds to build new beds for the boys dorm. With 50 pounds (or 56 euro) they can build a bed for an orphan kid. The capacity of the facility is 100 beds, so our goal is to reach 5000 pounds, so the 100 orphans have a place to sleep there. We build this fundraising page in hope for your help to reach our goal.
Every donation counts, no matter how big or small it may be.
All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether our target is reached, not reached or exceeded.
We are asking that you kindly donate as we try and raise £5000 for beds for the boys hostel. That works out at approx £50 per bed
