About this online 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 our 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 our 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.
Our 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.
The vaccine roll out in Scotland these last few months has helped us feel a little more hopeful about the future here. This is your chance to share that hope with people whose struggle with sickness and poverty will last a lot longer.
To be announced soon… We're working with supportive businesses to bring you some exciting prizes. Check back here or follow us on social media to hear more soon.
