Lalmba: A Place of Hope

One of the World's Smallest International Relief Agencies

WE’RE QUITE AN UNCONVENTIONAL INTERNATIONAL AGENCY (that’s good), AND REALLY SPECIAL TO THE PEOPLE IN AFRICA WHOM WE SERVE (that’s really good)!

We’re pretty small by international standards. 

But to the people we serve, we’re the GIANT – a group of committed professionals who search out the most remote parts of Africa in which to work – places where other organizations have chosen not to work.   You’ll find us in parts of Africa that are extremely remote, many hours’ drive from any modern city, on the shores of a lake and deep in tropical rain forests where no other Westerners are working. We specialize in providing medical care, health education and microloans to people who have no place else to turn, and support for very needy children who recognize us as their family now. Our work is not easy – but it certainly is rewarding.

Our mission statement sums up our work in a nutshell:

Empowering rural communities in Africa to provide their own people with high quality basic health care, effective public health initiatives, microfinance and support for vulnerable children.  We have a special love for children, whom we see not as a burden, but as part of a brilliant future for Africa.

 

We at Lalmba love what we do. Even though Lalmba has grown over the past 50 years, we still insist on “feeling small.” It’s important to us that our management, our volunteers, our African staff and our donors all feel like family, and that we get to meet and know the names of the people we serve. We work from home offices instead of in a fancy (expensive) building. If you call the Lalmba phone number, depending on who is in the US right then, you’ll reach Hillary or Jeff James, former volunteers and the only 2 Lalmba employees running the programs.
