International ProjectsBewdley Club continues to support the Ruth School in Bucharest through an unbroken association of 19 years with 4 pupils sponsored by the Club and others by individual members.

Likewise, education support through Every Child is continued, now for a pupil in Malawi in his 3rd year, following several years activity in Peru.

The annual Cheese and Wine in November raised funds to purchase a Shelterbox, while the sponsored walk allowed a donation to Sightsavers. Further donations were made to Water Aid in response to an emergency appeal in Tanzania and to Hope and Homes for Children.

The Sunny Trust, which involves support for communities in a remote part of North East India, recently benefited from a Club donation to allow purchase of weaving looms to replace those lost in a recent conflict.

The Club has forged a link with the Bansang Hospital in the Gambia where a donation was given to equip ambulances with Oxygen cylinders.

Classroom equipment was enabled to be purchased for the Azad Choudhury Academy in Bangladesh, where 2 pupils are also being sponsored individually by Club members. Further assistance is being considered via a Trade Aid Box donation.

A new project the Ifakara Bakery, in the poor part of Tanzania was helped with a donation following an interesting presentation to the Club.

The Club partly sponsored two local students who carried out charity work in Nepal and Ghana.
