June was an activist and humanitarian, supporting projects and helping people throughout her life’s work. She studied homeopathy, Reiki healing, counselling and aromatherapy to name just a few of her activities.
June Martin was the co-founded of the Mpika Village of Hope through her friendship with Jenny Musakanya. She began raising funds to send to Jenny’s family in Africa during a life threatening drought in the country. June's fundraising continued, charitable status was granted in 2004, and on the 28th January 2005 Jenny Misakanya opened our orphanage in Mpika with our first five children.

Over the years, our work in Mpika has continued to expand and develop. June, created huge change in small parts of the world through her many acts of kindness, generosity and self sacrifice.
