TOOLS FOR SELF-RELIANCE
In memory of Bob Cook, the late father of our trustee, Chris, we arranged with Tools for Self-Reliance to provide kits of refurbished carpentry tools to five locations in Malawi. Their purpose is to give vocational training to young people. Bob loved working with wood and produced impressive results, like making a wardrobe smaller by cutting out some of the middle and joining the two halves back together again - seamlessly!
The kits will be assembled in the UK from second-hand tools sourced here and refurbished by volunteers, and then shipped to Malawi.
VILNIUS CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
Support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at this hopsital in Lithuania by buying a CD (or even a cassette - can you remember those?) of a live recording of Lithuanian musicians playing music by a Lithuanian composer. The CD cover features a beautiful painting by the composer.
