Thanks to Carol Finlay and her mother, Irene (far left), who recently delivered some boxes of clothing to the Strachur store, to be sent to Esther Lupafya for use in the HIV/AIDs programme at Ekwendeni Hospital.
Sister Esther Lupafya, Co-ordinator at the Ekwendeni Hospital HIV /AIDS Programme, recently visited the Raven Trust at Strachur and met Mrs Helen Scott of Lossiemouth, representing Moray West Presbyterial Guild, and Iain McPhilimmy, Trustee of the Raven Trust.
Esther expressed her gratitude for all the clothing and knitted goods sent to her. Her department is currently responsible for the care of some 7,900 orphans in the Ekwendeni area and the goods are very much appreciated.
Container FCL 58 was loaded at Stirling on 21st July. We were lucky that the day was bright and sunny as the days before and after were wet. The container was loaded with school equipment which was surplus to requirements due to rationalisation of schools in the area, collection of the goods being co-ordinated by Trish Cooke. Most of the goods are bound for Bandawe Girls’ School and Ekwendeni Girls’ School in Northern Malawi.
