About the event
Hear from and support healthcare workers in Malawi battling sickness and poverty in the pandemic.
EMMS International’s work providing compassionate, high-quality healthcare for some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people has never been as important as during Covid-19.
Join their CEO and Director of International Programmes Cathy Ratcliff in conversation with Dr Arie and Dr Lisanne Glas from Mulanje Mission Hospital; Dr Esau Kasonda from Ekwendeni College of Health Sciences; and a recent graduate from the EMMS International project training young Malawian women in healthcare professions. They will discuss the impact of the pandemic in the lives of women and girls, and families struggling with chronic illness and infectious diseases.
This online fundraiser “Malawi Frontline Voices” is your chance to show your support for communities in Malawi , where over half of people live on 76p a day, where there is only one doctor for every 40,000 people, and where less than 1% of adults have had the chance to get the covid vaccine.
