Charity details

The Little Way Association


The Little Way Association is a charity that aims to help the poor, needy and sick in developing countries throughout the world.  For over 50 years the Association has provided assistance to those in need, currently raising around £4m each year.  Most of our supporters are Roman Catholics, but some of our benefactors belong to other Christian denominations and other faiths.  Any donation which is sent to us  by post, by banker's order, or online through this website is used entirely for the purpose(s) specified by the donor (we have a separate fund for administrative expenses). We make sure that the money goes to help those in the greatest need by ensuring that all projects we support are supervised by the local bishop or missionary society.  Our funds provide food, medicines and other aid for the hungry, sick, refugees, needy children, lepers and victims of natural disasters.  We give funds to help build small houses and schools, provide wells, roof mission chapels and support Missionary Priests, Sisters and Brothers in clinics, hospitals and orphanages.  In times of famine and drought we provide emergency relief.

John Bradburne Memorial Society

The John Bradburne Memorial Society was founded as a charity in England in 1995 in order to help support Mutemwa Care Centre in Zimbabwe. It was set up in honour of it’s late warden, John Bradburne who spent the last 10 years of his life from 1969 -1979 caring for the leprosy patients of Mutemwa. 

The society continues to support the Mutemwa Care Centre, whilst also spreading information about Bradburne’s saintly life and life prolific writings.  JBMS produces two newsletters a year in the summer and winter to a board membership with the UK and the rest of the world.

The donations we raise go towards the basic running expenses, salaries of workers, additional food and medication required by the Mutemwa community.  Brother Raymond who is lay Franciscan is the administrator for Mutemwa, whilst Father Linous is in charge of the spiritual well being of the entire community at Mutemwa.
