Under the shadow of His Wings

Who are Iphiko?

Iphiko are a UK Christian based mission, established in 2012, working in the countries of southern Africa, including South Africa,  Zambia, and Tanzania, amongst others.

Iphiko is the Zulu word for “wings” and wings are what we seek to give to those who live daily with the emotional and spiritual damage of trauma of various kinds.

A trained counsellor/psychotherapist works with individuals and groups in need, and also trains key people - social workers, teachers and pastors for example - in basic counselling skills.  Others teach, engage in prayer ministry, travel on mission trips and fund-raise.

In addition, we also support at risk children and their families, supplementing food and medication where needed, as well as ensuring children can learn about Jesus in a Christian run crèche.

It is a great privilege to work with people and to be able to bring God’s love and healing power to them.  We have seen many lives transformed by an encounter with God, people who have gained fresh hope and a belief that life can be changed.

Iphiko is a small charity with no paid staff.  Each of the volunteers give their time freely and pay for their own expenses and travel.

What does the Bible say?

But for  you who fear  my name the sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture

Malachi 4:2

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty...

He will cover you with his feathers,

and under his wings you will find refuge.

Psalm 91: 1,4

Be gracious to me, O God, for my soul takes refuge in you,
And in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge.
