The Raising Malawi team just completed a visit to Malawi to check on our project to build a pediatric surgery and intensive care unit at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, the country’s commercial capital. The facility will include the country’s first pediatric ICU and will more than double the number of surgeries performed on children each year.
Raising Malawi believes education should be accessible to all children. As a part of our continued support, we recently purchased new uniforms for the students of Home of Hope Orphanage.
HIV and AIDS education for young people is a critical part of global efforts to end the AIDS epidemic. Educating young people empowers them to protect themselves and also helps reduce stigma and discrimination around the issue.
The vocational students that Raising Malawi is supporting are in their final semester! We are so proud of their progress and the skills they have learned through their apprenticeships.
