Why is there a donation included in the price and why do I need to pay it?
As part of your payment there is a £495 donation to Love Support Unite. This helps the charity cover costs of organising your trip. They are what keep Love Support Unite running and able to make a difference to communities in Africa. This ensures that we are able to continue our projects long term and are also able to support you before and after your trip. We put as much of this donation back into the projects as possible by keeping our overheads down, our staff in Malawi live locally, we do not rent an office, working from Tilinanu Orphanage. In the UK we keep admin to under 20%. We’re extremely passionate about helping the communities we work with and do not waste a penny.
