The Manna House Day Nursery supports the work of Hope Village, Malawi.

A day care centre for vulnerable families and children, especially orphans. This provides activities for local children including sports, crafts and teaching up to secondary school age.

Children's homes for orphans who have no relatives to care for them. The children are cared for by married couples with a heart to help orphans, they often have children of their own and take these orphans in as part of their family.

A small clinic which offers teaching and assistance to those effected by HIV/AIDS. They also assist with family planning and carry out Malaria testing in the surrounding villages.
