The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 5th November was Past President Duncan Hamlett from Lunesdale Rotary Club. For many years he has been involved with the charity, ‘Mary’s Meals’ and has been organising fundraising featuring a request for a Global Grant from Rotary.
This has been a long drawn out process which has now finally come to fruition. The project , working with a local Rotary Club in Malawi, was to build a number of pre-schools in the south of the country. There are now 15 brand new centres catering for 3000 children, many HIV positive, who are provided with two meals a day.
The project is still ongoing and the aim is continue fundraising and to fully equip the centres.
