Malawi Appeal - Latest News
Posted on 4th July 2021
The Fleur de Lys Foundation started working with Birmingham Children's Hospital (BCH) in 2006 when our Regent Hermione was working there.
They had formed a BCH-Malawi link fund to help establish a children's section at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Blantyre. The idea was to bring medical and nursing staff over to BCH for training and to send staff from BCH over to Malawi to help train there as well.
There was also a requirement for equipment and the Foundation started supplying equipment and has continued to do so. One of the first things were knitted hats, jackets and blankets for the neonates and heaters for the babies’ room.

The Foundation commissioned the Uttoxeter U3A knitting group to knit these and regular shipments have been made ever since.
