Mother of Malawi

Full Product Description

  • Looking for a powerful true story?
  • Mother of Malawi tells the story of Dutch woman's remarkable orphanage
  • You'll see how God can use us to bring immense hope and community

Annie Chikhwaza, dubbed the ‘Mother of Malawi’, tells her incredible life story in her inspiring biography – her difficult childhood, her abusive marriage, and her globally recognised missionary work.

Annie was launched into the public eye when Madonna adopted a child from her orphanage. Through this story of interest, Annie’s life and charity received much praise through the media coverage by journalist Jacques Peretti and other newspapers (The Sunday Times, The Guardian) and TV stations (Channel 4). This book tells her story, how this Dutch girl grew up to become an international inspiration.

Read about Annie’s:
•   Suicide attempt
•   Dramatic conversion at a Brother Andrew Event
•   Heart of caring for the poor in Amsterdam
•   Time in South Africa during the height of the Apartheid
•   Escape from an abusive marriage
•   Commitment to building a Children’s Village in Malawi, including: several children’s homes, a care facility, a primary school, a nursery school, and a farm

The Village called Kondanani (which means, ‘love one another’) is described as an oasis of love. Her incredible work has inspired celebrities, attracted media attention and will now, thanks to this book, inspire thousands more.

Publisher's Description

Annie Chikhwaza grew up in Holland. In struggling to come to terms with her abuse as a child she tried to commit suicide but was dramatically converted through the ministry of Brother Andrew.

She then began to minister to the poor and marginalized on the streets of Amsterdam and in the volatile townships of South Africa during the height of the apartheid era. Having survived an abusive marriage and the turmoil of divorce she married a poor African pastor and went to Malawi to start an orphanage. Today Annie has nearly 200 children in her care, many of whom are HIV positive, and she has built a small town called Kondanani ('Love one another'), which boasts a care facility, several children's homes, a nursery school, primary school and farm.

Kondanani is an oasis of love in a country with more than one million orphans. It has attracted the attention of the media all around the world and a host of celebrities, including Madonna who has adopted two of her children.
