Donations and the proceeds from a raffle at the REHIS Annual Conference Dinner raised the sum of £358. This has been presented to Tracy Morse (née Thomson), a Scottish EHO working on a project with orphans near Blantyre, Malawi. Tracy said ‘This is great news. With this money I can buy mosquito nets for 100 orphans and 100 vulnerable individuals and also for the volunteers who assist at the centre (there are 30 of them that help out on a rota). It would make a big difference to
those families especially as we are in the malaria season now.
If there is remaining money it can be used to buy waterguard which is a chlorine based water treatment for household containers. Once again it is the time of year for diarrhoeal disease prevalence and can make a big difference. We appreciate the support!’
