TAKING MEDICAL CARE WHEN NONE EXISTS SINCE 1997

WHY WE DO IT

We believe that healthcare must be a basic right for every child, not a luxury. Every day we save young lives and end suffering in Sub-Saharan Africa by taking medical care to children, otherwise denied access because they live in remote villages, often over 20km away from the nearest tarmac road.

OUR APPROACH

We employ a methodology based on our simple philosophy:-

  • To employ a “Dust on the boots” practical approach, rather than theory.
  • To work hand in hand with the local community.
  • To deliver high achievement on the ground with low administration costs.
  • Award winning Film Director Ken Howard came to Malawi and filmed a documentry on our work – you can see a short version on You Tube by clicking here.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

In all of the villages we drive to, we are the only access to medical care that the children have. Our Mobile Clinic visits each village group on a 4 weekly schedule.
Apart from the rainy season when we borrow a local home our Mobile Clinic operates from under the shade of a tree. We carry a wide range of medicines and can therefore treat a wide range of conditions.
Those children who present needing minor surgery are referred to our Mobile Operating Theatre.
