DSC05690_2Annie Chikhwaza was brutally attacked and left for dead but she overcame hatred with love and the result is Kondanani Children’s Village – an “oasis of love” that she and her late husband Lewis Chikhwaza, founded in Malawi in 1998. Since then, hundreds of lives have been saved in this nation that has a million orphans and Kondanani continues to offer hope to a new generation of African leaders.


Kondanani means ‘Love One Another’ and Annie lives this out daily. Her story is one of victory over defeat and forgiveness over injustice. Suffering has been no stranger to her. She knows the pain of abuse, self-harming and depression. Her first husband mistreated her and she survived the trauma of divorce. She knows the threat of having children removed and the anguish of dealing with abortion. Lewis’ family cruelly rejected her, she was falsely accused, attacked and her life lay hanging in the balance. It took months for her to heal, but she knew the power of forgiveness.

Throughout her life Annie has reached out from her own pain to comfort others. Now even in widowhood, she continues to build a brighter future for the children in her care.
