Every Life Matters

 

In Malawi, cancer diagnoses have more than doubled in the last decade and by 2021, an estimated 180,000 patients and their families will need palliative care.

Rural Malawians with incurable illnesses are amongst the poorest people in the world. Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world and healthcare resources are already stretched.

If you are poor and sick in Malawi then pain relief and even basic food can be out of reach. This means lives are wasted in hunger and pain.

You can help change this, you can show that every life matters.
