About Nkhoma Hospital Foundation

A Christian organization serving children, families and elderly people suffering poverty and oppression. Through practical and spiritual support we give hope by meeting urgent needs and building self-sufficient communities.

Helen was asked to help Nkhoma Hospital Foundation with their enormous task of raising funds to build a new hospital. The current hospital is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this year, but in many areas is in complete disrepair. Measures have been made to renovate some of the wards, but without a complete overhaul, it is really insufficient for the needs of the growing community. Despite its restrictions, Nkhoma are incredibly well respected throughout Malawi and its neighbouring countries. Often patients, (or as they like to refer to them clients) travel from hundreds of miles away to experience the caring service Nkhoma offer. The hospital is a leader in its field in Africa for Eye Care, Cervical Cancer treatment and Fistula. The goal for Nkhoma is to become a ‘Centre of Excellence’ where Doctors, nurses and medical students can come and train in tropical medicine whilst also offering their own services to the clients in need in Malawi.

Nkhoma have recruited Helen to help with their overall fundraising strategy. Helen hosted a brainstorming meeting with two representatives from Nkhoma who travelled to Amsterdam especially for the meeting and the Chairman of the Nkhoma Foundation in The Netherlands. The brainstorm gave great insight into what Nkhoma had already achieved, the aspirations of where it wanted to go and the potential. Everyone at the meeting agreed that there was a big mountain to climb, but we could do it step by step.

Helen created a dedicated fundraising website Nkhoma Hospital Foundation . It was important that this was created as focuses the cause and encourages donations from individual donors as well as allow the charity to have online awareness. IFC integrated a secure online donation facility which meant that donations could be received easily and securely.

Currently the fundraising strategy is being finalised and the Case for Support is being written. Helen is looking forward to working on this adventure together with Nkhoma Hospital.

Helen worked closely with the Zending Over Grenzen office in the Netherlands and when necessary with the head office in the UK.

Helen completed a thorough review of the data and submited a full report and suggestions, improvement and where it was not necessary to make any alterations. In some cases if it isn’t broken why try to fix it!

Continued to work with Zending Over Grenzen on the overal fundraising strategy planning for the next 5 years, which included brainstorming for a brand new social media strategy and looked at the possibilities of a volunteering and ambassadors program.

About The Good Family

Why The Good Family

We live in an incredible time. A time of rapid change and unprecedented opportunities. A time when everything seems to be.

And for that reason also a time more than ever requires us to consciously deal with the choices we make every day. Never before the impact of humanity on the earth was so decisive for her welfare as now. Whether it comes to environmental, health or quality of life, all around us we see (in) directly the consequences of our daily actions. The quality of our choices is more important than ever for the future of next generations. How look our children’s future will look like is up to us.

For whom?

We are The Good Family, founded by and for young families.Started by Noah, Peter and Sandra, parents like you, believe that good intentions and positive energy make the difference. Because we are not alone, the community is growing! Together we are many and we take action, at home at the kitchen table, along with our children.

What are we doing?

We want to make our daily choices like in a conscious way, but we do not always know how. At The Good Family families tell each other their stories and we share our tips . If we combine our efforts in terms of food, housing, leisure, clothing, toys, education, etc. We find our own solutions and alternatives to help each other and inspire.

How do we do it?

The Good Family connects families and organizations with sustainable ambitions to common sense in the world together for future generations. Together with our partners we develop games that children and give parents an insight into our daily routines and their impact on health, environment and society. Families can always make this a little more durable playfully their lifestyle. On the other hand get our partners (businesses, schools, governments) to better understand the perceptions, motivations and needs of families so that their (future) sustainable products and services can offer better reflect this. So together we achieve important goals such as eating healthier, lower CO2 emissions and more fair trade products in the shops.

CPhI have a strong CSR policy as understand the importance of its impact internally and how it can affect business externally too. They wanted to increase their offering to their visitors and exhibitors at their Pharmaceutical World Wide event.

Together CPhI and Helen worked together to identify and create sponsorship packages for exhibitors and promoters to buy. All proceeds from the sponsorship sales would go to charity Global Angels as they were CPhI’s nominated charity. There was also the opportunity for a straight forward donation directly to a Global Angles project. To compliment this, CPhI and IFC connected with organisation Camps International to be able to offer for volunteers from the CPhI community to help build a school in Kenya.
