  • Dedication to Serving Others

    Drugs and Supplies in Acute Shortage At 11:18 am on Thursday morning, a senior Nurse from a District Hospital in the Southeastern Malawi called my cell. Her voice reflected desperation. “Can we get medical supplies, catheters or whatever is available? I am standing outside your warehouse.” She continued talking without giving room for a response. “I am sorry madam but we are running out of stock of all medical supplies as well.

  • Not on My Bed

    Malawi … The father rushes into the ward carrying his critically injured child. The boy had been riding in a minibus that was in a highway accident. He had blood running down his face, and it was obvious he had a broken leg. Behind him 12 more people were entering the district hospital with serious to critical wounds from the head-on collision with a tea carrying lorry.

  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital Receives Wheelchairs

    Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital was named after the Queen of England, at its official opening, during a state visit by the Queen Mother in July 1957. The Hospital is the major referral hospital for southern Malawi, and cares for millions of people, with many being referred from other regions of Malawi. Like other health care facilities, this hospital faces an acute shortage of medical supplies, drugs and equipment to meet demand. The population of 16 million relies on government to provide health care, as 80% of the people live below the poverty line. It is not surprising to note that... Read more →
