I’ve previously written reports of Scottish scientists and researchers working to improve the health and economic circumstances of the poor, across the globe. With particular regard to India and Bangladesh, Scots are involved in helping to remove arsenic from water supplies. In South-East Asia, they have been helping to reduce cattle fart!
Now we hear, in Energy Voice:
‘Around £11 million has been allocated to supporting local projects in Malawi until 2023. The cash from the Scottish Government’s Malawi Development Programme will be split between 11 initiatives aimed at improving health and education and boosting economic development and renewable energy. The projects will be delivered by Scottish-based organisations and their Malawian partners. The schemes include a £1 million pre-school and primary feeding programme run by Mary’s Meals, a £1 million emergency medicine project involving NHS Tayside, and a £1.2 million initiative from Edinburgh University aimed at strengthening rural health facilities.’
