2022's lucky winner was Laura Graham. Winning a two-week adventure trip of a lifetime for her and a friend through WVS to Blantyre, Malawi!
Laura will be volunteering at the Blantyre SPCA. The centre offers free vaccinations, sterilisation, and other treatments to sick and injured stray animals or those from low-income households in the city of Blantyre and rural communities in the district, giving the chance to see the stunning countryside and meet the community. Laura will also get the opportunity to visit the stunning Majete Wildlife Reserve where WVS provides veterinary care to wildlife and anti-poaching dogs.
Mission Rabies, the sister charity of WVS, also operates in Blantyre, providing life-saving canine rabies vaccinations, educating children and adults as to how they can protect themselves from rabies, and running surveillance campaigns to monitor rabies cases in the area.
