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 ("e;Love one another"e;), 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.
