Friends of Joshua Orphan Care in Malawi, Africa was established in the United States to bring awareness to the needs of children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in rural communities surrounding the city of Blantyre, Malawi in Africa.

We work closely with the Joshua Orphan and Community Care, which was founded in Malawi in 1998 and became a registered charity in the United Kingdom in 2005.

Friends of Joshua Orphan Care was founded in the United States in 2009.

Laurel Glockler has always felt a strong connection to the children of Africa.  In 2008 and 2011, she traveled to Malawi and saw first-hand how all funds raised go directly to the children’s needs.  She was so inspired that she decided to start Friends of Joshua Orphan Care in Malawi as a non-profit in the USA.  Laurel is a mother and works part time for the University of California, San Diego.

Glenda Collins first became acquainted with Joshua Orphan Care when her husband Kirk traveled to Malawi with a team of Rotarians in 2003. Glenda works in project management and she and her husband recently moved to Perth Australia to live and work for a few years.
