Project Malawi Mobile Clinics

    When your ambulance looks like this…..



    ..... is it any wonder that 4 in 5 children die on their way to the delivery room?

    When we dial 999, we take it for granted that medical assistance will arrive promptly. In rural Malawi, there is no 999 service. For most of the population, there are no ambulances.

    Those in dire need travel up to 20 kilometres to seek emergency medical help in their makeshift “ambulance” – a rusted, garden wheelbarrow with a punctured tyre.


    16 Malawian women die every day in childbirth or from related complications - 14 times more than in the UK.

    Recognised as one of the world’s poorest nations, with 53% of its population living below the poverty line, Malawi faces chronic development problems. High illiteracy rates, as much as 45% in some rural areas as well as widespread disease, mean that most Malawians face a very difficult plight.

    Unleashing Potential which is a non-profit organisation has teamed up with Ummah Welfare Trust to address the healthcare issues facing the people of Malawi.

    £40,000 will provide for 4 mobile health and prevention clinics which will treat and educate villagers in order to reduce preventable illnesses such as diarrhoea, malaria and malnutrition. The clinic will also facilitate uncomplicated births for Malawian women.
