The Raven Trust supports the development of eye care services at mission hospitals in northern Malawi.
The dental chair donated by the school in Elgin was successfully installed after some difficult and challenging work. Connections to services were made and welded locally. The return visit to Malawi of Nigel and Vicky, dentists from Dunoon, enabled them to use this equipment to undertake dentistry work in an area where the local people have no access to dental services.
The new mobile dental chair and sterilising unit also means that they can move around more rural communities.
While in Malawi they organised a conference for dentists which enabled colleagues to share experiences and difficulties. It hoped to develop this further in 2014
