Ridley College students extend helping hand to Jacaranda

Students from various countries including Canada, Nigeria, USA, China, Uganda and the UK have arrived at the Jacaranda School for Orphans for an exchange visit.

Ridley College students from Canada are specifically contributing by crafting artificial hands to be donated to those in need.

In an interview with MBC, Robert Burke, a teacher from the college, said the initiative aims to instill a sense of self-starting in students.

The group consists of 13 students, a nurse and three teachers who are actively involved in the creation of the artificial hands.

Luc Deschamps, the French Consular and Director for Jacaranda School for Orphans, said the visit provides students with practical experience in making artificial hands.

Currently, Odyssey in California, USA, is the sole company manufacturing such artificial hands.

The Canadian team arrived in Malawi on March 2,2024.
