University of Bolton donates £10k after devastating storms

 

The University of Bolton has donated £10,000 to help a partner institution in Africa recover after the devastating impact of a series of catastrophic storms.

The donation to the University’s partner, the Malawi Institute of Management (MIM), will help to support the rebuild and also to provide medical support after an outbreak of cholera and food parcels to remote areas.

 Effect of Malawi Storm

 

Those hardest affected live in the areas harder to reach and regions that cultivate vital crops.

A huge area, including Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, was initially hit in January by Tropical Storm Ana and then this month by Cyclone Gombe, killing many and devastating communities across the region.

The disaster comes just three years after Cyclone Idai killed thousands in the region.

 Malawi Institute of Management

 

The University of Bolton has been a partner of the Malawi Institute of Management since 2007, with more than 1,200 students who have graduated with us.

The MIM delivers the University’s MSc Project Management, MBA (plus MBA top-up) and MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
