Network for a Better World hosts its first Annual General Meeting
Members of our committee gathered in Sheffield on 13th February 2014 for the first Annual general Meeting of the charity. It was a great opportunity to review progress and to hear the remarkable progress that has been made in a short period of time. The financial report was presented by our treasurer and an overall report will be published in our next newsletter (and the formalities sent to the charity commission as required)
The meeting also considered plans for a volunteer programme and also for our health education programme, examining exactly how it can be cascaded through the families in the villages over the years to come.
Three medical students from the University of East Anglia are working in Cambodia for a month this summer. N4BW members Mary and Andy Clark presented them with copies of "Where there is no doctor"- one in English and one in Khmer. As the two editions correspond page for page, they can be used to both train local health workers and to treat patients. The books were signed by Alice Davidson OBE, as gifts of Network for a Better World for the people of the Diocese of Battambang - which has many links with the Diocese of East Anglia in England.
On Monday we went to Salima, closer to Lake Malawi to visit Network for a Better World's FIRST volunteer placement- Jackie Garner is working for 2 months to help Ndi Moyo Palliative Care Centre develop a herbal/medicinal garden for patients and their families.
