As our country Malawi suffers its Second Covid wave, far worse than its first, there is a critical shortage of oxygen to treat those in hospital. The Scotland Malawi Partnership (SMP) has established an urgent, time-limited appeal through which people can donate to support oxygen supply in Malawi.
We encourage all those who can, to donate to this appeal and help share across social media.
Decision-making as to how best to offer urgent support for Malawi in this area has come from the expert-led Scotland-Malawi Oxygen Supply Coordination Group, chaired by Mr Alberto Gregori MB ChB Glasgow, FRCS Ed, FRCS Eng, FRCS Ed (Orth), DFM Glasgow, a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon.
Members of the Oxygen Coordination Group come from many key organisations across Malawi and Scotland, including: Mulanje Mission Hospital, Covid Response Private Citizens Appeal, the College of Medicine, Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST), the University of Edinburgh, Malawi Human Rights Commission, Medic Malawi, Malawi-UK Business Group, University of Glasgow, World Orthopaedic Concern, Chifundo UK, Kondanani UK, EMMS International, MaSP and the SMP.
This appeal will close at midnight, Sunday 28th February.
