Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Since 2006 I've been involved in raising money for (mostly) health-related projects in the rural North of Malawi.
Kavuzi medical clinic has been largely the focus of these fund-raising efforts since 2009 & represents the nearest healthcare facility for an impoverished rural community of over 12,000 people.
Donations have been given extremely generously over the last 2 yrs in particular, following a need to provide a new, purpose-built facility. Funds for staff salaries still need to be found
Having had the privilege of visiting (and working in) Northern Malawi 3 times in the last 10 years I have seen first-hand how vital these rural clinics are to those who live nearby. The healthcare system that we take for granted here in the UK bears not the slightest resemblance to that experienced by the vast majority of Malawians and therefore helping to keep Kavuzi running is hugely important to me, not least because I have spent time working there myself.
Without staff the clinic cannot run and without salaries the staff cannot afford to support their families so would have to leave and find alternative means of doing this.
The difference is being made daily in the lives of the patients who are treated at this clinic
Entirely on Staff Salaries
