The Raven Trust supports the development of eye care services at mission hospitals in northern Malawi.
On Saturday, 22nd April we learned that FCL 105 had been involved in an accident on the way from Lilongwe to Ekwendeni. Rev Levi Nyondo, General Secretary of the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia, was swiftly on the scene, along with Patrick Tembo, Senior Administrator at Ekwendeni Hospital and our own Ben Mhango. This is the first conatiner sent by the Raven Trust which has come to serious harm.
Rev Nyondo quickly took charge of the situation and organised security by the Malawian Police force and help from the army, while keeping us here in the UK abreast with developments. Amid tight security, the container was opened and a human chain formed to unload the container and release the boxes to the rightful recipients who were on site or remove them to Ekwendeni Hospital.
We are very grateful to all who helped unload the container and make sure that there was no looting but our special thanks must go to Rev Levi Nyondo, Patrick Tembo and Ben Mhango
