About the charity

Love Support Unite Africa Foundation (LSU) works to empower people in Malawi with a leg-up
rather than a hand-out. Malawi is one of the least developed countries in the world, and 52% of
the population live on less than 23 pence per day.

LSU works to lift communities out of the cycle of poverty and into a cycle of sustainability, by
integrating education, enterprise, nutrition and health through integrated community-based
projects that use sustainable infrastructure and resources. These projects help to create
self-sufficiency and therefore food security, in turn breaking the reliance on aid. Our projects
cover a wide range of areas and include but are not limited to sustainable farming, medical
outreach, education and training.

  • Maintain clear recording systems for all communication with donors and prospective donors.
