Lucy Finch on BBC’s 100 Women of 2016 List

December 1st, 2016

Inspirational Lucy Finch, our great friend and founder of Ndi Moyo Palliative Care in Malawi has been named on BBC’s list of 100 Women of 2016. The list covers inspirational and influential women responsible for all manner of extraordinary achievements from groundbreaking moments of defiance to new takes on fairy tales, stories of octogenarian cheerleading to inside the world of e-gaming. And of course, Lucy - and her remarkable story of vision, energy and above all, compassion. Lucy Finch on BBC

As the piece introduces her: “Malawi is one of the world’s least developed countries with very primitive health care. In March 1998, nurse Lucy Finch had visited her native Malawi to care for her sister who was dying of Aids, when hearing a young man’s agonising death made her decide to come back and set up Malawi’s first and only hospice.”

We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with and support Lucy and her husband, Tony’s work at Ndi Moyo for several years now; and they’ve been amazing supportive of Tuesday Trust projects. So our congratulations to Lucy - we send her our love and best wishes. The BBC has chosen very well.
