Maternal and child mortality rates in Malawi remain among the world's worst.
In many ways, motherhood in Malawi is the same as Motherhood everywhere. Children are welcomed into the world with boundless love and hope. However, too often in Malawi, women do not have the resources to ensure that their children and grandchildren survive their first years.
Individualized respectful home-based care improves health and survival.
Newborns and critically ill postpartum women are identified and enrolled at the District Hospital. A nurse is assigned and within days of discharge visits them in their home. During each visit the nurse assesses the client, their family, home environment, and community. She offers targeted health education. She works to mobilize both family and the community in support of the program beneficiary.

Every day in Malawian women wake up to face great odds, and live their lives with determination, and care for children with great love.

By supporting this cause you ensure that some of those facing the greatest struggles, receive support directly in their homes. This is an opportunity to impact lives simply and directly. Thank you for your support.
