We support children in extreme poverty in Malawi

    Monday, 27 January, 2014

    Op de Beeck & Worth have always been involved in supporting charitable projects and with the help of our friends, clients and suppliers have over the past few years made donations to local and International Charities.

    On this occasion Danni Worth and his son Tom will be jumping in the saddle on 2nd April in order to commence the Camino de Santiago. They will set off from Roncesvalles in the North of Spain, and aim to arrive to the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela some 10 days later. The 800 Km cycle will take them across 8 Provinces, and is mostly on off road mountain trails and paths.

    Apart from arriving in Santiago, the objective is to raise in excess of € 10.000 for Mary's Meals. Mary's Meals is a global movement which sets up school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education. They provide one daily meal in a place of learning to attract chronically poor children into a classroom where they receive an education that can, in the future, be their ladder out of poverty.

    The funds raised will be channelled towards feeding the 952 children at Chigwaja Primary School in Malawi. The school has 495 boys and 457 girls, with 4 permanent classrooms. There are 14 teachers, and the daily meal provided by Mary's Meals allow children to attend school every day rather than work or scavenge for food.

    In recognition of the effort, Op de Beeck & Worth will be donating € 1 for every policy sold or renewed between the 1st October 2013 and the 31st of March 2014.

    A Just giving website has been launched, and we would encourage you to visit the site, and make a small donation for this very worthy cause:

    Danni, Tom and indeed the pupils at Chigwaja Primary School would like to thank you in advance for any contribution or support you are able to give.
