Donations

We are delighted and excited to have been donated a mobile dental clinic for use in Malawi by NHS Highland. This is a lorry with a self-sufficient fully functioning dental clinic with a small waiting room. The lorry will have to be transported to Malawi and this fundraiser is to help cover those costs along with the costs of buying dental materials to stock the van. Our aim is to use the van to help support the local workforce and provide preventive and simple restorative procedures for rural populations who have no access to dental care. Our mechanics from Smileawi Spanners plan to carry out some repairs and servicing on the vehicle which will of course incur some costs. In order to reduce the environmental impact we want to fit large solar panels and a water filtration system. We also plan to buy some instruments and equipment for the mobile clinic.


All funds raised will be passed to Smileawi irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.


The charity

A Scottish based charity set up to improve the dental services in Malawi. In a world where pain relief is a basic human right Malawi falls short, in the North of the country where there is a population of around 4.5 million people they only have 1 qualified dentist and around 30 dental therapists.

Our aims are to help alleviate this problem by

  1. Supporting the existing and the future workforce.
  2. Improving and maintaining the equipment and facilities.
  3. Promoting oral health and prevention
  4. Facilitating groups of self funded volunteers to travel to Malawi to provide free pain clinics to the local populations who otherwise have no access to dental care.
  5. Repairing and maintaining hospital vehicles with our branch charity Smileawi Spanners.
  6. Fundraising to support our activities.



Registered charity (no. SC046434).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
