Joyce Thompson

I have been involved with Friends of Malezi since the beginning. I met Mary Makaranga whilst working with her in her previous role working with vulnerable children in the community. She shared her dream and vision to have a children’s home for HIV+ve orphans. I was present when the first children were referred to the centre and have seen first hand how their lives have been transformed. I am hooked on Malezi and return regularly to help with administration, training and of course to see how well all the children are now thriving.

 I became involved in the charity as a result of my parents who are FOM Trustees. I am the administrator for the FOM Sponsorship Programme and enjoy taking part in the fundraising events. My husband, Ed is the quiz master for our regular pub quizzes at the Ferry Boat Inn,  Holywell, Cambs. As a family we are passionate about FOM as we have seen the impact of this support to these amazing children’s lives.
