The Falconer Trust
The Falconer Trust was formed in 1980 by Henry and Irene Webb, and its primary aim is to support the work of Lilias Falconer and the Children’s home that she started in 1949 in Kabulamema, Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia. Henry and Rene both passed away in 2010 and the Director of the Trust is now their son Ken. The trust has a warehouse and office in Norfolk, from where all of the donated goods are stored and dispatched. In May 2014 Neil Starling became the Manager of the Falconer Trust, taking over the day-to-day running of the charity.
The Falconer Children’s Home
The Falconer Children’s Home and Orphanage was established in 1947 by Lilias Falconer, a nurse from Manchester. It is situated in Kabulamema, in a remote part of the North Western province of Zambia. Miss Falconer ran the Home for fifty years, until she passed away in 1998, and it is now being run by her children. Simon Samutala arrived at the Home just two days old and is now in charge of all the different activities and projects. Miriam Mulyata came when she was seven days old, and having trained as a nurse has the responsibility of looking after the children’s welfare and the running of the main house.

New Video Presentation
As you will no doubt be aware, the current 'lockdown' restrictions mean that I am not currently able to make the usual deputation visits to churches and midweek groups on behalf of the Falconer Trust. As we do not know when 'normal service will be resumed', I have made a short video to update you all on the latest situation at the Falconer Home. It lasts just ten minutes, and can be viewed at any time. Click on the following link to view it on YouTube:
I hope you find it interesting and informative. If you are unable to view it, and would like a copy on DVD, please let me know.
I pray that you stay well and safe during these troubled times.
