02 Nov Goodbye Aubrey
We were sorry to say farewell to Aubrey, who has been so important in building up the services and resources of St Andrew’s over many years.
His friendly and welcoming smile will be familiar to any who have visited – indeed he may well have been the first person you met, when you nervously came through the arrivals at the airport.
He would unfailingly be on time, to meet and greet and sort out any problems at all.
He drove me personally countless miles, safely and always with interesting conversion and insights into Malawi.
Thank you Aubrey, and all the best.
The new hospital administrator is Chris Zambira. Chris is very familiar with Mtunthama – he went to our own All Saints School. In the past he even received help with his studies from Medic Malawi, which enabled him to take a Degree in Theology and Education, and then he proved his versatility with a Masters in Finance and Control.
Rose Honde, our new Deputy Administrator, is also a good friend and very well known to us, having worked at St Andrew’s in the Pharmacy and NRU, and also at All Saints School as a teacher, before completing her degree in Human Resource Management.
Finally we welcome as our new Accountant, Mr Mac Tuju, who has a Degree in Accounting and has previously worked for Habitat for Humanity.
The new team have all assumed their responsibilities, and also in place is a new Local Board of Management, chaired by Michael Masudi, the Headmaster of All Saints School. This is a very welcome development, offering local insight and immediate contact, and thereby adding to the underlying and continuing support Medic Malawi can offer.
