Chombo is a children's village in Chirimba Township, Blantyre. Children between 3 and 16 years old grow up together in a village-like community in the housing units at Chombo Mission.

All children have no parents or relatives that can take care of them. Big or small, every child has a long history of suffering and has experienced sickness, death, poverty, abandonment and hunger. At the beginning of their Chombo stay, the children need medical attention and emotional support.

Chombo house mothers take care of the children in a Christian environment and provide day to day parental care. The younger children attend Chirimba Primary School. The older children attend secondary schools in different parts of Blantyre.

Thanks to the volunteer work of Eduard und Ursula Wendland, as well as many sponsors in Malawi and Germany, Chombo Mission has been able to help Malawian children with a stable and permanent home.
