A Thank You from AMECA


A huge thank you for all your support and encouragement over the past year. We wish you all Season's Greetings and a very Happy 2015.

It has been an eventful year; in recognition of the time, enthusiasm, donations and generosity of spirit of so very many people, a brief reminder of AMECA's achievements, news and progress during the year:

John Simpson retired after 6 years as Chairman of The Board of Directors; John's contribution to AMECA cannot be quantified and his business expertise guided us to where we are today. John, thank you from us all. We were lucky enough to appoint Hugh Freedberg as our new Chairman; Hugh's impressive experience in international business management is already proving a great asset to the charity.

My personal thanks go to all the Directors of The AMECA Trust, for their hard work, patience, advice and moreover their enduring friendship.
Ruth Markus, CEO.
Join us on the 16th January at The Royal College of Surgeons, for an illustrated talk by Capt. Levision Wood,  AMECA's newly appointed Patron, on the  soon to be televised Walking the Nile. Tickets available now at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/walking-the-nile-ameca-fundraising-event-tickets-14320160987


The year started off with a wonderful donation from Round Table Blantyre's  sponsored bike ride to Mulanje Mountain; read more................
 
Donations of computers to The College of Medicine, Blantyre and medical equipment to district and mission hospitals continued throughout the year. Our thanks to all the surgeons, volunteers and friends who were kind enough to haul out huge amounts of supplies, with a bit of gentle persuasion!!

 

Very successful surgical teaching and research visits were undertaken in May and October of this year. Our thanks to the surgeons, surgical registrars and nursing staff who came out to Malawi, donating expertise, time, equipment and their humanity.

 
Over £27,000 was raised for AMECA via the Secret Compass fundraising challenges in Malawi this summer. Our deepest gratitude to all the participants who contributed so very much in terms of time, enthusiasm and sheer hard work. Participants from the senior group will be generously sponsoring school fees for some children at Chilaweni. View the video.....
Why not join us in 2015 on what our participants refer to as a life-changing experience? If you would like to lift yourself out of the ordinary, join us next year; http://secretcompass.com/ameca-student-fundraising-challenge/#!summary

Plans for a primary healthcare clinic at Chilaweni are developing well; the charity looks forward to its next steps in Malawi in early 2015 and to being able to progress this project to build phase, following the rainy season.

Working in collaboration with The Blantyre District Department of Health and liaising with Joshua Orphan & Community Care  and the community of Chilaweni, 2015 promises to be a very exciting year for the charity.


In remembrance of Alex at Christmas time........... Lev and Alex on an earlier expedition, around ten years ago. Alex, you are with us in spirit always and alive in the hearts of so many.
