Flood damage in Mulanje

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is still raining in Mulanje, but we believe that the torrential rains of the last two weeks are coming to an end. Now is the time to assess the damage and begin to help the community rebuild.

 4000 latrines have been destroyed by the floods, and three villages are in urgent need of new boreholes to provide clean water.   The damage to crops and food security will become apparent as the water recedes.

Our priority at MMH is to restore clean water and sanitation to the villages in our catchment area as quickly as possible, to avoid outbreaks of cholera and other diarrhoeal diseases.

 £20 or $27 provides the basic materials, cement and roofing sheets, to enable our community to rebuild one latrine

 £4000 or  $5,300 will pay for a new borehole and pump to provide clean water for a whole village

Please help us to get this work done quickly – any donation, however small, will be gratefully received.

January – a record tree planting month!

Pupils and staff at the primary school were not put off by the rain during MMH tree planting week 2019!
This year we have exceeded all previous records, and planted more than 2500 trees at MMH. Thanks to Mulanje Mountain Conservation Trust, Eastern Produce Malawi and the village agroforestry groups working with our Sustainable Livelihoods programme for supply of a great variety of tree seedlings. Now for the hard work of looking after them until the next rainy season begins….

MMH celebrates World Diabetes Day

Congratulations to the non-communicable diseases (NCD) team at MMH, who planned a great day to increase community awareness of diabetes and high blood pressure – a big walk from Chitakale to MMH, and a colourful event on the football ground were well covered by local media. The day focussed on ” Know your Numbers” with free testing for diabetes and hypertension, tallks and demonstrations of healthy eating and cooking.

“Another milestone in the history of Mulanje Mission Hospital”

“Another milestone in the history of Mulanje Mission Hospital” said Tabu Gonani in her welcoming speech to guests at the dedication and official opening of the hospital’s High Dependency Unit on 19th September. It was a colourful occasion with guests from CCAP Blantyre Synod, the Beit Trust, Mulanje DHO and the community, dancing and singing by hospital staff, speeches and tours of the new unit. The unit was dedicated by Rev Roy Zingani, and the ribbon was cut by Sir Andrew Pocock of the Beit Trust.
Our grateful thanks to all our partners in this endeavour: the Beit Trust, the English Reformed Church Amsterdam with contributions from Rotary and Wilde Ganzen, Brothers Brother in the USA and the DAK Foundation in Australia.
And our thanks to all those MMH planners, managers, clinicians, nurses, cleaners, ground labourers, colleagues from Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital whose fantastic teamwork has ensured that we are now ready to provide this new service for our patients.
