Lucy founded Msizi Africa in 2007 after spending 6 months volunteering at Mants’ase Children’s Home and falling in love with the children and the country.  Lucy has travelled extensively throughout Africa and is passionate about making sure the children she meets reach their full potential, and she believes this starts with a good meal every day.  Her work in the charity sector has seen her recognised in many areas including winning the prestigious Vodafone Foundation “World of Difference” award.

Because of the covid 19 lockdown, we have been unable to fundraise which has resulted in a significant drop in our income. We are very sad to announce that we have to cut the number of villages we feed in from five to three, with the very painful reality that 57 children will now go without food every day. It is their only lifeline and one which we never, ever wanted to cut. We are truly sorry for the devastating impact this will have on the children.
