From the success of last years 10k run, a small Bristol based Malawian community will be running the Great Bristol 10k on Sunday 13th May 2018 to raise funds for hospitals in Malawi through the Malawi Health Care Support (MAHECAS) UK charity.
MAHECAS key focus is to aid healthcare delivery in hospitals, surgeries and other primary health care locations across Malawi, primarily through the provision of medical equipment and support. The charity which has been active for over 20 years now, has raised over £500,000 so far. These funds have gone towards many healthcare initiatives in Malawi including building a new dental surgery at Queen Elizabeth hospital in Blantyre and provision of medical equipment at Ntchisi Hospital, Lilongwe Central Hospital and Chitipa Hospital.
The group aims to raise a minimum of £1000, to support a great charity, which has shown transparency in its efforts to support the healthcare system in Malawi by pulling together the Malawian diaspora community in the UK.
