Each year we treat 25,000 children. Thousands of children are alive today as a direct result of the treatment we provided. Each year 40 final-year medical students come from the U.K., Republic of Ireland, Australia and New Zealand to practice medicine with us in Malawi on their elective placement.
WHAT WE DO
We provide practical life-saving solutions to children living in remote areas. We provide healthcare to children where none exists. Our work spans medical treatment, public health and health advocacy.
Our Children’s Mobile Medical Clinic carries over 60 different medicines, enabling us to treat a wide range of conditions.
Malaria, still Africa’s biggest killer is the most common complaint we treat followed by respiratory tract and various other infections.
Malnutrition is common and we occasionally come across rarer conditions such as hydrocephalus and Burkitt’s Lymphoma.
We provide long-term care for a small number of chronic conditions including asthma and epilepsy.
We take advantage of the fact that the arrival of the clinic generates great excitment to give Public Health and HIV/AIDS education to all who attend.
