Dr. Megan Cole and her colleagues
Dr. Megan Cole and her colleagues asked us if we could assist in getting some equipment for handicapped people to Malawi. We sent this equipment to Malawi in the container and shipped it up to Lilongwe to await Megan's arrival. Here is a letter from her and photos from their stay in Malawi.
|We got back from Malawi last week and I just wanted to let you know that the equipment was waiting for us in Lilongwe when we got there. Indeed we had not landed more then a couple of hours before going to MAP (Malawi against physical disability) headquarters to check it out.
We were able to demonstrate its different uses in our training courses and while the majority of it we left in Lilongwe we did take about 6 items of equipment to Rhumpi in the North for use in our training course there and then to be used in that very under resourced area of Malawi.
So thank you all at Nchima Trust once again for all your efforts in getting the equipment to Malawi. I have attached some pictures for your interest. If they are too big let me know and I can print some off or crop them.
