The Raven Trust supports the development of eye care services at mission hospitals in northern Malawi.
What a difference! Gone is the “forgotten” look and feel of the clinic. Now it has been renovated, there are plenty of disposables courtesy of the aid agencies, it is well staffed and, at last, the water is running. Running water at the clinic has been a long battle with a borehole that couldn’t be drilled quite deep enough because of the large, hard boulders in the sub-soil so pumps burnt out or failed. Now there is a time switch which allows the well to fill before the demand exceeds supply and a storage tank to stabilise supply. Mlowe Clinic does still need a “fixtures and Fittings” upgrade – stainless steel trolleys and tables, bookcases, filing cabinets, etc.
