A MARIST monk who once spent nine months in a wheelchair is soon to spearhead three new African projects for Group Captain Leonard Cheshire VC, founder of the Leonard Cheshire Foundation.

Dr John Hutchinson, an exparatrooper, will start by launching work on Tanzania's first home for mentally handicapped children. In Katumba and Mishamo he will organise a base relief centre to receive a trained medical team which will be corning out from England in the Spring to help with 105,000 refugees who, after five years of drought, arc close to starvation.

Br Hutchinson will also organise relief work for Zimbabwe and 276,000 disabled people in need of help.

Br Hutchinson, a trained teacher and Medical Aid, broke his back when parachuting in Canada and feels that his nine months in a wheelchair helped give him a much greater in,sight into the problems of handicapped people.
