Join us for a simple lunch of soup, bread and cheese followed by coffee and home baking.
Today we have a chance to meet Pearson Soka, who is visiting Scotland for a few weeks in February. Pearson is Hospital Administrator of Mulanje Mission Hospital (MMH) in Malawi, where Ruth Shakespeare is Medical Director. We sponsored Pearson through an MBA a couple of years ago and MMH is now running even better, despite challenging circumstances, with his knowledge and expertise.
Pearson already knows a few folk from St Andrew’s and St George’s West, when a group from the church – Ian Gilmour, James McNeill, Ruth Forrester, Alison Campbell and musicians Andrew Carvel, Stuart Murray Mitchell and Emily Walker- visited Malawi in 2013.
Our relationship with Mulanje has continued to flourish since then and this is a great chance to welcome Pearson and hear to first hand news from Mulanje and Malawi.
