Danielle and Adrian are raising money for Joshua Orphan & Community Care

Our story

We grew up in Malawi and it remains a very special place to us both. Our mum Sue lives there and runs Joshua Orphan and Community Care who are supporting community-driven sustainable projects in Malawi.

We spent much of our time growing up in Malawi enjoying our favourite sports, swimming and horse riding, both of which we have carried on into adulthood. To raise money for our beloved second home, and a cause close to our family, we are completing a marathon each during May, Adrian in the water and Danielle on horseback!

Cyclone Freddy wreaked havoc across Malawi and has hit the areas and community centres hard. The death and damage caused continues to be devastating. We are fundraising to help provide the aid needed to get these communities back on their feet again.

The money raised so far has helped to keep delivering supplies to the communities delivering tarpaulins, maize, soya, waterguard, tap buckets and soap to deal with the immediate essentials of shelter, food, water and sanitation.

However work needs to continue to tackle the long term effects of Cyclone Freddy, communities are now faced with the challenges of longer-term recovery, rebuilding and food security. Our communities rely on subsistence farming and many families have seen whole crops washed away, along with the topsoil. Harvests before the cyclone were poor and stores of food have been swept away. These families do not have the means to replace these crops and are now facing some critical challenges ahead.

We are now seeking support to help provide these families with alternative crops for the forthcoming season and maize for next year, but we can’t do this without your help.

The scale of destruction and the volume of work needed to enable families to rebuild their lives, repair their homes and achieve sustainable food security is unprecedented. As a small charity, our reach is limited, but with your help we can once again aim to provide the means for families to stand on their own two feet again.

All and any donations will make a huge difference and will be greatly appreciated by us, our awesome mum and the people of Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. Zikomo!

Danielle has managed to convince one of the other ponies to join in too so has managed to power up to 20 miles!

Thank you to everyone who has been donating to such a great cause! Your support is helping to keep us both motivated as we push to the end of our challenge!
