MEMBERS of Chipping Campden & District Rotary Club will hear about a development programme in Malawi.

Julian Watson will give a presentation on Thursday, February 13.

He first visited the country in 1997. This led him to become involved and to pursue another University degree in International Studies (completed in 2016) and currently a Masters in Development Management.

In 2015 he retired from a 33-year career as a Music Teacher to focus on developing the work of the charity.

The February presentation follows a striking illustrated talk by Neil Morland last month about his 3580 Project, improving the health, educational and religious wellbeing of children in the Kissytown refugee camp in Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in the world.

The project helped with the supply of mosquito nets to help reduce the child mortality from malaria (the 3580 part of the project's name is the number of children under 10 who died in the refugee camp in 2010 – by 2019 mortality had reduced to about 350).

New members and enquirers are always welcome at the club’s meetings at the Cotswold House Hotel normally on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 6.30pm for 7pm.
