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.

PLEASE CAN YOU HELP?
Like so many charities, we have suffered a huge fall in income during the Covid-19 pandemic, to the degree where we are now at crisis point. At the current level of income, we may run out of funds by Christmas, even having pared down our operation as far as possible. We of course recognise that the current situation has caused great hardship to so many individuals, businesses, churches, charities etc., but any contribution you are able to make, no matter how small, would be so valuable in helping us to provide for the children at the Falconer Home in Zambia. You can donate in the usual ways - by cheque, online bank transfer, standing order, or by clicking the Donate button above to give by card. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

‘Mama Ndona’ by Pat Webb
This book tells the fascinating and inspiring story of Lilias Falconer, ‘The Lady With The Golden Heart’, and the establishing of the Falconer Children’s Home and Orphanage at Kabulamema.
It draws extensively on Miss Falconer’s correspondence, as well as many personal reminiscences.
The book is available for a suggested donation of £9.50 including p&p, and all proceeds go towards the work of the Falconer Trust. Please email, telephone or write to request a copy.
