The Web Project visits The House of Good Health in Malawi

The Web Project sponsors HIV charity in Malawi Africa

(PRWEB) December 24, 2008 -- Having decided to help support a charitable cause it didn't take long for The Web Project to find The House of Good Health in Senga Bay, Malawi. Known locally as Nyumba Ya Thanzi, the charity helps children with HIV to manage their disease by providing financial, nutritional, and emotional support. Nick Maynard from The Web Project went to Malawi to find out more.

"Even before arriving at the Nutrition Centre I was confident that we had found the right charity to support" begins Nick. "As we approached the infectious clatter of children enjoying their childhood grew ever louder". Nick then met with Project Manager Richard Moyo who explained more about the unique philosophy underpinning The House of Good Health.

"Firstly there are no administration costs; so that you know every penny you give goes to helping the children you see here" begins Richard "I'm from the Senga Bay area, and know how things work, so we can make a real difference." And walking around the Nutrition Centre it's easy to see that The House of Good Health is already making a real difference.

The Nutrition Centre provides help with transport to the hospital and encourages HIV positive parents to take their children for tests. A balanced diet is provided (and a stress-free environment) to help boost the children's immune systems; so they can better fight their disease. Antiretroviral drugs are free in Malawi and carefully administered by The House of Good Health.

In just one year, the Nutrition Centre has grown to include: a schoolhouse, a kitchen and a generous outdoor courtyard. Richard is already planning a shower bloc and market garden where vegetables can be grown. After a long afternoon chatting with Richard and playing with the children, Nick headed back to his hotel, committed to raising further funds for The House of Good Health.
