Shrewsbury School All Night Sponsored Sports
Charity Fundraising Shrewsbury School
Medic Malawi is a young and dynamic charity, based in Shrewsbury. We are special firstly because every single penny raised goes to those in Malawi for whom it is intended - there are no UK salaries or expenses at all; and secondly, because we work exclusively and directly with the community leaders in a rural district in one of the poorest parts of central Malawi, itself one of the poorest (but most peaceful and beautiful), countries in the world. Through donations and the direct funding of Medic Malawi, a life saving hospital has been built, together with a feeding centre for the malnourished, two orphanages, two schools and employment projects. With our clear focus and regular contact we can be sure of the proper use of money for care, relief and development.

The great news is that 2014 saw the opening of the 'Shrewsbury Eye Clinic' next to the hospital. This was the outcome of a visit by Salopians in 2012, and was funded by Shrewsbury School. In 2016, we had the privilege of seeing the eye surgeon at work, including the miraculous moment when the eye patches came off, and the patients burst into song, as they could see again. In 2018, we have been able to fund a vehicle so blind people in remote areas can reach the Clinic. The Eye Clinic addresses a key local problem - unnecessary blindness through disease, including in children, is a serious and heartbreaking menace in the area. Along with the general costs of the hospital, the funds raised through this Sports Night will be crucial in keeping the Clinic running and saving sight - because even with volunteer visiting surgeons, an operation to restore sight costs £30 for special medicines and aftercare. It is a brilliant project, hugely needed, and with an outcome which will mean so much to individuals. Thank you for your support.
