The Raven Trust supports the development of eye care services at mission hospitals in northern Malawi.
Sue Kevan and Jim Seymour have recently returned to the UK, having completed another ‘Focus on Malawi’ visit, doing eye clinic work at Ekwendeni, Livingstonia and, for the first time, at the remote lakeside clinic at Luwuchi. During the three-week trip, they saw around 550 people, dispensing hundreds of donated glasses and ready-readers. They were also able to train local medical assistants and, following discussions with senior hospital staff, plans are materialising to send one or two away for specialist courses.
