The UK charity 'the Friends of WESM Blantyre' was set up in 2011 by a group of people who had witnessed and taken part in the work of WESM Blantyre and wanted to continue their support from overseas.   

We recognised that many ex-pats from a number of countries had precious memories of their time in Malawi.  Many had enjoyed the events and activities organised by WESM to raise awareness of Malawi's wildlife and environmental issues.   We formed the charity to give those people an easy way to keep in touch.

For your donation of a minimum of £20 (or equivalent) a year, you will receive the monthly newsletter electronically and have access to WESM publications and products at the special Friends supporter price.  And you will know your money will be invested directly in environmental education, conservation and wildlife protection in the southern third of Malawi.
