Doing it for the kids

After Ocean Grover Robyn Casey visited Malawi in 2002, she knew she had to help.
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world and Robyn was immediately confronted and challenged by the poverty and societal conditions impacting the local people but at the same time was amazed by their warmth and resilience in spite of these conditions.
And that’s where Mphatso Children’s Foundation was born. Mphatso is a local charity, which works in Malawi, feeding and educating more than 1000 children a day.
In October of 2016 the foundation held a car-boot sale to raise funds. The sale was very successful, and culminated with a container being donated to send to Malawi.
The container was filled to the brim with clothes, shoes, bikes, toys, school equipment and baby formula and much more, all donated by the local community of Ocean Grove, Bellarine and Geelong area.
The container has arrived in Africa and will be delivered to Malawi.
Mphatso Children’s Foundation has a gala night coming up on Friday 18 August, at the Waterfront Kitchen in Geelong, to raise funds to cover the cost of transporting the container. All funds raised or donated to Mphatso go directly to the work. Mphatso is supported by a local committee of volunteers.
The night features live music, guest speaker Cam Greenwood, who founded Monsta Surf and the Live Passionately Movement, silent auction and door prizes.
Cost is $70 per person and the night kicks off at 7pm. Bookings at
