Malawi is enduring its worst cholera outbreak ever recorded. More than 1,000 lives have been lost, with 24 people in one village dying in one day. You can help stop the spread of this deadly disease and save lives.

The rainy season is adding to the urgency for action by speeding the spread of the disease, displacing people and making it more difficult to access healthcare services. With the risk of more heavy rains and flooding, it is essential that we act quickly to stop the spread of this deadly disease.

EMMS International has launched an urgent appeal to raise £160,000 to improve water and sanitation and help save lives.

14 health centres urgently need safe water

EMMS International urgently need to raise £160,000 to support our partners in Malawi to install clean running water and sanitation at 14 rural health centres and improve water supply and sanitation at Mulanje Mission Hospital.  The lack of clean water is the single biggest reason cholera kills.

 

Cholera is a preventable and treatable disease. The Minister of Health Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda has appealed to the public to adhere to preventive and containment measures, such as the use of safe water, frequent hand washing with soap and food hygiene.  She also calls on the global community to help quickly control the outbreak and save lives.

You can help provide the lifeline of clean water in this time of crisis.

 

It’s urgent that we give vital access to safe water by installing water facilities at health centres and hospitals today. This will help curb the spread of the disease and improve care for those who have already fallen sick.
