About Us

What is El-Shaddaih Orphanage?

El-Shaddaih Orphanage was started in July of 2008 by Blessings Nyasulu. El-Shaddaih is located in Salima, Malawi.  They currently provide food and shelter to 207 children, ranging in ages from infancy-18.  Malawi has been ranked one of the poorest nations.  At El-Shaddaih, the majority of the children have lost one or both of their parents and have experienced multiple layers of trauma. Some of the children have living relatives that cannot afford to care for them. The orphanage provides the orphans with food, clothes, shelter, healthcare and education. El-Shaddaih is Blessings’ full-time ministry. El-Shaddaih is a Christian organization and subscribes to faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  The children at El-Shaddaih are raised up with Biblical values in a caring and prayerful manner.  El-Shaddaih relies on support from churches and individuals in North America.
