But we also strongly encourage regular donations to One Smile. This is the form of support which is most valuable to us because we can use it to plan to transform the lives of people with mobility difficulties month on month and year on year.
When we hand over 500 miles’ prosthetics and orthotics service in Lilongwe to LION and the Malawi Ministry of Health around the end of 2024, most of our ongoing expenditure will be on direct payment for devices, and so the role of One Smile will only become more important. In fact, paying for devices for the poor through One Smile will become the main purpose of the charity, and eventually its sole purpose.
The amount you give and the frequency is up to you, but £175 (just under £15 a month) will pay for an average prosthesis or orthosis each year.
If you would like to make regular payments by standing order please click here to download a standing order form to send to your bank or use your bank’s own form and just take 500 miles’ bank details from our form.
If you would like to make a Gift Aid declaration for your payments, you will need to complete a Gift Aid form and send it to us by post to the address on the form.
You can also make regular payments to One Smile through Just Giving. Just specify “One Smile” when you are given the chance to leave a message towards the end of the process.
