Throughout her life Annie Chikhwaza has retained a heart for the marginalised. First in Holland, then in South Africa, now in Malawi, she has reached out with practical help. When she married a poor African pastor and moved to Malawi, she was horrified by the thousands of orphans on the streets. Today Annie cares for 200 children, some HIV positive, and has built a small town called Kondanani (-Love one another-), with a medical facility, nursery school, primary school, high school and farm. In a country with more than one million orphans Kondanani is an oasis of love. Annie is tough. She has overcome molestation, divorce, carjacking, a broken back, attempted murder, attempted rape, and the death of her beloved husband. Yet she has a vision, and will not be deflected. This is her story.
An inspiration' * The Sunday Times * 'I can't stop talking about Kondanani!' -- Guy Ritchie Kondanani is a five-star orphanage, what they are doing here is extraordinary. It's a center of excellence.' -- Jacques Peretti * Channel 4 * Everywhere across Malawi, children sit by the roadside, waiting for something terrible to happen. Here, they run up to you, each more charming, clever, funny and take-home-able than the last. -- The Guardian This is an amazing work of faith and compassion. Annie has suffered much and her consequent compassion shines through. Her huge courage and determination to bring hope and good news to the poor is motivating. So also is her sacrificial lifestyle. * Evangelicals Now *
