African eyes

Colchester Vineyard supports eye care in MalawiColchester Vineyard supports the development of eye care in two hospitals in the north of Malawi, in Africa. The hospitals are church-run and serve needy populations. In a country that is so poor, the challenge is to create services that are ultimately self-sustaining and locally staffed.

Together with Focus on Malawi friends, we’ve just returned from a visit to monitor how work’s going, do some training and to plan for the future. Things look good, and for the future, there is a strong possibility that we can help establish cataract surgery in one of the hospitals over the next couple of years.
