About Us

St John Malawi performing first aidSt John Malawi is a non-profit trust registered under the Trustees Incorporation Act 1962 of the Laws of Malawi.  Also it is a member of the Non-Governmental organizations in Malawi.

The headquarters of St John Malawi is in Limbe, on the outskirts of Blantyre and comprises office space with a large meeting/training room.  Opportunities are currently being sought to expand the existing building which was constructed in the early 1980’s through a grant from the Beit Trust.  The expanded activities of St John Malawi now mean that the original premises are too small.
