The Ameca Trust
Healthcare in Africa can only be effectively addressed by an improvement in both the training and the retention of healthcare professionals. Initiatives should be sustainable over the long term, rather than provide a well intentioned but unsustainable “quick fix” approach. We are currently fundraising to build a new primary healthcare clinic in southern Malawi; one of the most deprived areas in one of the most deprived countries. We donate Bursary Awards to Medical, Nursing and Physiotherapy students at UK universities to fund Medical, Nursing and Physiotherapy electives in African hospitals. We also work in collaboration with UK surgeons to facilitate and fundraise for surgical teams from the UK to be sent to support and mentor clinical officers in district hospitals in Malawi. For more information, please visit our website at Visit AMECA's Facebook page at

Tony's Malawi Mission

My page:

A HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated. We have reached the target! That's amazing, thank you all so much. Please keep donating if you wish. But thank you again.

I am taking part in a fundraising community challenge in Malawi later this year, supporting the work of the AMECA Trust, which provides medical aid in Africa and provides valuable training for nurses from the UK.

I will be going to Malawi and climbing Mount Mulanje, southern Africa's highest peak. It's a 5 day trek which will involve camping and getting bitten by insects. If that isn't worth a few quid, I don't know what is.

I will also be helping in a local community project and visiting AMECA's hospital in Malawi. That hospital is not reliant on hand-outs to continue operating: It is a sustainable operation.

The AMECA Trust is committed to the delivery of healthcare, training of healthcare professionals and to healthcare education in sub-Saharan African countries, through sustainable initiatives. You can read more at

My fundraising target is £2,550. Please help me reach it!

Thank you for reading this; any money donated will be so greatly appreciated! Please remember to Gift Aid your donation if you are eligible, as this makes a huge difference to the amount of funds raised for the charity.
