Hymns for Zambia - The DVD
Following the success of the Hymns for Zambia Facebook event in May, a new DVD has been produced. The DVD contains eighteen hymns which were played on the day, with slideshows of photographs and video clips of various aspects of the Home. Please get in touch if you would like a copy. There is no charge for the DVD, but donations towards our work are always gratefully received.
Data Protection - Important Information
All charities and businesses must comply with new laws regarding data protection, known as GDPR. One new requirement is that we are able to demonstrate that everyone whose data we hold (names, addresses, email and phone numbers) has given permission for us to store this data. For this reason, we are asking everyone on our database to complete and return a consent form, so that we have this permission on record. You can obtain a consent form by clicking here .Please print off the form and send it to us, or scan it and email it to us.
Only supply the data you wish us to have (for example, you do not need to give your telephone number if you do not wish us to have it). If you receive your newsletter from someone other than ourselves (e.g. it is passed on to you from a friend or someone at church), and you are therefore not on our database, you do not need to complete a form. Completing and returning the form will also ensure that we have your information correct and up to date. If you do not complete a form then unfortunately we will have to remove you from our database.

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Finance Policy
The Falconer Trust has produced a formal Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. We recognise the importance of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the children at the Home during our visits, and providing a framework for dealing with any potential issues which may arise. The staff at the Home have adopted a similar policy, so that the same level of protection and transparency is in place at all times. To view our policy click here. We have also adopted a Financial Management Policy, to ensure that all financial matters are handled in a transparent and rigorous manner.

The Covid-19 pandemic has, of course, made the annual trip to the Falconer Home impossible for this year, and has also meant that Neil has not been able to make his usual deputation visits to churches, schools and midweek groups. We wait to see how the situation evolves, and will resume normal service as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we 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.
The coronavirus is on the increase in Zambia, though largely confined to the cities. So far, the community at Kabulamema has been infection-free. Please pray that it remains so. The Falconer Home has put into place various social distancing and hygiene measures in order to keep the children and staff safe.
