• Medical challenges, volunteer in Malawi

    One of the biggest challenges facing people in rural Malawi is access to satisfactory medical care. The majority of people live in rural villages, often a very long way and many hours from tar roads and public transport. This and the extreme poverty that these disadvantaged communities endure means that people are simply unable to seek medical attention or healthcare, even when vitally needed. We are working to address this issue by improving primary healthcare available in these villages through home based care initiatives and facilitating access to medical centres through provision of bicycle ambulances. Join our Malawi medical volunteer project http://www.volunteerafrica.com/Volunteer-Projects/lake-malawi-medical-volunteer-project/ and be a part of this important work.

  • Struggling to provide care: doctors in Malawi | DW Documentary

    Everyday life at a state-run hospital in the city of Zomba is a constant uphill battle. There’s just one doctor on duty, and nurses or medical students often have to cope with medical emergencies on their own. It’s a responsibility that requires a huge amount of dedication. There’s no functioning casualty ward at the clinic, only an ‘Outpatients Department’ staffed by medical assistants and nurses, and it is often overrun by the seriously injured. Practically every day, panic-stricken families drag emergency cases into the hospital in a desperate search for help. But there are no rooms, and the stations are regularly so full the untreated patients end up on the floors. _______ Subscribe to DW Documentary: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCW39zufHfsuGgpLviKh297Q?sub_confirmation=1# For...

    "Sometimes the children would die on the way to the health centre." It's Noah's mission to stop this. Noah bikes 20 miles to collect vital medical supplies, treating children in some of Malawi's poorest and most remote villages. Noah’s community in Kasungu District has managed to cut child mortality in half over the past 5 years. It’s just one example on how investing in the world’s poorest children provides more value for money, and can save almost twice as many lives.
