This is just to say that we from anamed are very happy to meet you soon! We are very busy in preparing, and there are some important matters that we want to communicate with you:

  • Your arrival should be on Sunday afternoon so that we really can start on Monday morning after breakfast. Participants arriving later than Monday morning will not get any certificate.
  • The certificates will be given on Saturday night after supper. So if you leave earlier, you will not get any certificate. This is to ensure that you got all the important knowledge! If you live nearby, you may leave afterwards; otherwise enjoy with us the Sunday breakfast.
  • These fees cover the teaching, books, posters, materials needed, food and accommodation. If you want to buy additional copies for your NGO, you are welcome to do so on a good price, as long as they are available.
  • Bed sheets and mosquitonets are available.
  • Any translations during the course will  be done by the participants themselves!

Fee for the seminar

The fee for African people or expatriates living in Africa is 250 Euro, (or equivalent in USD, or in Malawi Kwacha). For people travelling from Europe the price is 500 Euro.

This is an all inclusive price, and includes food, accommodation, books, some seeds, posters and all seminar materials. Transport costs and any insurance required remains the responsibility of the participant. If participants require more books and posters for their project, they are available for sale at a reduced price during the seminar. Payment of the fee: The fee must be paid on arrival. No cheques can be accepted. If you sponsor a participant, please pay the fee in advance onto our account, please write us.

The following are important aspects of our seminars:

  1. Our emphasis on working at the grass-roots, encouraging and supporting local people in developing and extending the skills they already have.
  2. We encourage traditional healers and formal health workers such as doctors and nurses to work together. We help them to recognise the positive contribution that each makes, and encourage them to work out practical ways in which they can cooperate.
  3. By introducing Artemisia annua, enabling healers, pastors, missionaries and health workers to become much more independent and successful in their treatment of malaria.
  4. After the seminar, participants will be able to treat Malaria effectively with medicinal plants, in particular with Artemisia annua. Each participant will be given seeds and be taught how to grow this delicate but extremely valuable plant. Furthermore, participants will be able to recognise at least 20 other medicinal plants, to produce different soaps, different medicinal oils and ointments, black stones for snake-bites and to use and construct a solar oven, etc
  5. It is important that all participants have a commitment both to practising what they learn and to teaching others, for example by conducting a similar seminar in Natural Medicine themselves, at least for a weekend.
  6. It must be made clear to all prospective participants that they receive no fees for their attendance.
  7. Transport costs must be met by the participants, their employer or sponsor.
  8. All participants will work together in practical work and in establishing a garden. They must bring suitable clothes with them for such activities.
  9. Participants must attend for the entire programme; to come only on some days is not acceptable.
  10. Those participants who are Christians should bring with them a Bible. (Every day starts with an  devotion, participation in that is voluntary.)
  11. All participants should bring plant material of five medicinal plants from their region.

We look forward to hearing from you!

With best wishes, Yours sincerely, Karin Schwarz and Nelson Moyo
