The Raven Trust provides practical, direct support to needy communities in Malawi, East Africa.
Two teams from Scotland have just returned from Malawi where they undertook the replacement of the leaky straw roofs of orphan houses with new corrugated steel ones. When the work began, it was found that the walls of two of the houses were weak and that they would have to be rebuilt from scratch. With practical items sent in the container, the work of the Scottish teams and other funds, Mr and Mrs Soko of the DGM Hospital Primary Health Care Department have created real homes for around a dozen young orphans.
Two staff houses were also reroofed and refurbished. This tremendous effort was undertaken by Alan Laverock and his two teams.
