Ross Care help 'Tiyamike Mulungu Centre’ in Africa

5th June 2018

Ross Care recently responded to Kerstin Obermann, of Rochdale Council, in her request to provide replacement wheelchair parts to help her charity work with an orphanage based in Malawi, Africa.

The orphanage is called ‘Tiyamike Mulungu Centre’ and is based in the South of Malawi. The orphanage houses over 100 children, providing a home as well as an education. The orphanage has an onsite primary school with access to village and staff children too. The children’s age can vary between a few days old up to 18 years of age and the centre is funded solely by donations from all over the world.

Kerstin Obermann is a Specialist Teacher for Rochdale Additional Needs Service (RANS) at Rochdale Council.

''In 2012 I met the directors of the children’s home and stayed in touch ever since. Following regular/yearly visits I took teams to Malawi to support the home/school. Following this, I and another 4 teachers started a UK charity. My personal passion is to especially help the children  with Special Educational Needs, i.e. seating equipment, educational resources, walking frames, wheelchairs and apparatus''

The equipment Ross Care provided is on its way to Malawi this month and we are incredibly pleased to be able to help support Kerstin in her work with this worthwhile charity.
