Dunfermline Vets on a Mission to Malawi

That the Parliament welcomes work being done by staff at the Inglis Veterinary Hospital in Dunfermline to improve animal welfare in Malawi; understands that, on 5 May 2012, they will travel to Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe, to spend 10 days helping to equip and train staff at a veterinary practice; recognises that Malawi is one of the world’s poorest countries; understands that, although it has a population of around 14 million people, there are only nine recognised vets and 434 veterinary assistants to provide basic animal health care; supports the group from Fife, which comprises the co-owner of the Inglis Veterinary Hospital, Adam Tjolle, along with two veterinary nurses and an engineer; understands that the group hopes that this visit will establish a long-term twinning relationship between the two practices; notes the Fife team’s appeal for donations of DIY tools, in particular electrical equipment, cables and sockets, to help their Malawian colleagues, and celebrates this initiative, which it considers will play an important part in improving the welfare of animals in Malawi now and in the future.
