Donating to the Trust

We welcome donations for this work. All our income comes through the wonderful generosity of individual people and churches, and we receive nothing from government or other official sources.

Some of the students whose clinical training we have sponsored.

Our priorities are supporting the training of local clinicians in Malawi colleges (the clinicians are recommended by the mission hospitals and are committed to working locally); and helping to promote community eye health programmes. Other allocations go to acquiring and sending clinical equipment, and to support as necessary travel costs for visiting clinical teams.
