MAG

Medcare was the first group-wide charity that MAG supported in 2011. As well as financial support, MAG gave time for employees with key skills to help transform lives of children. From 2011-2014 MAG raised funds to enable the refurbishment and extension of the Wellspring Children’s Medical Centre, at a cost of £200,000. This work, which was completed in 2014, is providing opportunities for Medcare to treat thousands more children each year and to develop specialties to assist those children suffering from malaria, HIV/AIDS and those with physical disabilities and cerebral palsy.

Charlie Cornish, MAG’s Chief Executive, said, “I am confident that our work will make a huge difference to people who need help.”

MAG also provided funds to assist with sustainability of the enlarged medical centre for a 3 year period.

SPL International have supported Medcare activities for a number of years, under the leadership of their founder, Phil Jones. As well as funding various small projects and supporting individual children SPL provided funds for an office assistant in 2013/14. Sadly, Phil died in 2014, but his generosity towards Medcare continued as a legacy through SPL.

Bevie continues to support the work of Medcare through provision of funds for the development of the new Wellspring Home for Disabled Children. A team of Bevie employees will travel to Uganda in June/July 2018 to assist in the final preparations for the opening of the new home and to place a plaque in grateful memory of Phil Jones.
