April 2018 - Bicycle Ambulances for Chilaweni

Purchase of 3 bicycle ambulances for the furthermost villages in our clinic catchment area in Chilaweni, Malawi

Ruthie Markus comments :-

Donation of Bicycle Ambulances to AMECA Clinic catchment villages..........
Thank you to The Rotary Club of Epsom for the grant, enabling us to purchase 3 bicycle ambulances for the furthermost villages in our clinic catchment area. These ambulances will be used to transport women in labour, the elderly and infirm to our clinic at Chilaweni. If they are successful we will get 8 more!
The ambulances were locally made by the Dutch company Sacarementa in Blantyre; Sacaramenta provided instruction and training in maintenance and driving for the communities.
A really joyous afternoon for Paul Thomas and I, together with the clinic staff and beneficial community chiefs and committee members. Rain covers well tested in the downpour!!
Thank you Epsom Rotary for making this possible.
