Remembering Janet

Today, Tuesday 12th March 2019, is the 2nd anniversary of the passing of our beloved Honorary President Mrs Janet Knox.  Janet was a nursing sister at Chitambo in the 1960s. She loved the place and the people and her main legacy is in supporting nurse training scholarships there. She and her family continue to offer generous financial support for that and other things.

Some Friends of Chitambo marked the day by meeting with Janet's husband George for a memorial lunch.  Despite protestations, George gave us another generous donation towards continuing Janet's legacy at Chitambo.  We are very grateful for that and the support of the Knox family in general.

It was lovely that our Trustee, Dr Bridget Innes, was there to bring first hand news of Chitambo. She has just returned from a very productive project monitoring visit to Chitambo.

Bridget also brought back a wonderful haul of Zambian crafts which will be offered for sale at our fundraising event at Edinburgh University on Thursday 14th March:
